Skokie Alley Light Program
The Village of Skokie provides a comprehensive and effective street lighting program for all Village-owned residential, arterial, and collector streets within the Village boundaries. Often, though, residents and business owners are interested in additional lighting in the alley areas behind their property. To provide an option for alley lighting, the Village manages a cooperative Alley Lighting Program through which lights can be placed in alleys at a low cost to the property owner.

Free Water Leakage Test Kits
A running toilet tank means wasted water. Even a small leak can waste thousands of gallons per year, adding unnecessary expense to your water bill. Please stop by the Finance Department at Skokie Village Hall, 5127 Oakton Street, for a free test kit that is easy to use and will clearly identify the existence of a leak.
