Local Agencies Team Up For Cost Savings

Village Public Agencies

Look for the Hometown Times to be on your door starting June 28, 2013! The Village, Park District and Grade School District 58 have announced a partnership for sharing in the delivery cost of their respective print publications.  On June 28, 2013, the Village's newsletter and water quality report, the Park District's newsletter and Grade School District 58's Annual Report will be delivered door-to-door. Joint delivery will save a total of $13,000 annually by eliminating higher individual bulk mail costs.

The joint delivery project is yet another partnership between these local agencies to reduce costs, improve efficiency and save tax dollars.  Similar cost saving arrangements have been made for vehicle maintenance services and stormwater management projects.

Delivery will begin on Friday, June 28, and should take two days to complete. Single family residences and stand-alone business locations can expect a single bag containing all publications to be hung on their front door knob.  In apartments, condominium complexes, townhomes, and multi-tenant business locations, items may be delivered door-to-door or left in lobbies or with the leasing or property management representatives.

After June 30, if you feel your location has been missed please let us know at newsletters@downers.us or by calling 630.434.2255.
