To All Residents of Oglesby:
Effective immediately the City of Oglesby is initiating a ban on burning this Spring. This ban will continue until further notice.
The burn ban includes the burning of all yard waste and recreational fires (examples: fire pits or bonfires). Grilling is allowed at this time. As a reminder, the the burning of garbage is never permitted.
Respiratory issues brought on by COVID-19 have forced us to make many changes to how we operate on a daily basis. I believe this change is in the best interest for the safety of our community
We will continue to monitor the situation and keep our residents informed of any changes. Please continue to stay safe.
Effective April 10, 2020:
There will be a Republic Waste Service dumpster located inside the fence of the Electric Department (across from the Elk’s) that residents can take their yard waste bags only on Friday, Saturday and Monday between 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Stickers will NOT be required to be put on bags.
The Annual Water Quality Report is now available. To speak to someone about this report or to have a copy of it mailed to you, please call 815-883-3389
