The village does not license roofers or plumbers as these trades are licensed by the State of Illinois. Residents can verify if a roofing contractor is licensed by the state by visiting the State of Illinois Department of Professional Regulations. To verify if a plumbing contractor is licensed with the state, please contact the Illinois Department of Public Health at 217.524.0791. If the village does not have a current copy of a roofer's or plumber's license, the village will ask that they submit a copy to prior to permit issuance.
