Oak Lawn To Re-Examine Electricity Aggregation and Solar
The Village of Oak Lawn had previously dumped its electricity aggregation program claiming it was no longer competitive with ComEd. However, the village’s consultant is back with a new proposal that will be discussed tonight at the Village’s Public Works Committee chaired by Trustee Alex Olejniczak. Other committee members include William ‘Bud’ Stalker and Robert Streit. The village is also examining the idea of contracting with a solar energy company to reduce some of its own electricity bills.
New blood to Spark Moraine Valley Volleyball
A mostly new team and a strong returner all loaded with volleyball knowledge and experience should make the MVCC Cyclones the crew to watch this fall.

This is the first year the team is comprised entirely of her recruits. The incoming players include Julia Elsouso from Richards, a right side hitter from Club One Volleyball; Amanda Bulow, an outside hitter, and her sister Taylor Bulow, setter, both from Oak Lawn High School and the Celtic Force Volleyball Club and Abbi Fletcher from Richards.

Accordingly, there is growing interest in delivering alcohol from liquor stores and restaurants. Bury and Angell will tell participants what this means for state and local governments in this timely session. The moderator is Brian Townsend, Village Manager of Schaumburg.
Put it on the Calendar: Fall Fun Fest
The Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn’s 2018 Fall Fun Fest is right around the corner. We’ve been holding this event for well over a decade. It’s a low-key, fun event for the whole family. There is no charge to attend this outdoor event and we have several things planned this year. If you haven’t attended the event in the past, we hope you’ll check it out. We’re adding some new things this year, but we’ll have some of the tried and true things that your children love (like the free train rides).
