Press Release


ComEd Provides $10 Million in Financial Assistance to Customers in Need

2015 assistance funds to help customers facing financial hardship avoid service disconnection

CHICAGO (March 25, 2015) – ComEd announces it has dedicated $10 million in assistance funds for 2015 to help customers struggling to pay their electric bill. ComEd is urging customers who have fallen behind on paying their electric bill to contact ComEd to see if they are eligible for payment arrangements or financial assistance.

The ComEd CARE programs are focused on helping military families, veterans, senior citizens and people who may have experienced a job loss, illness or disability and need help with paying their electric bills. ComEd also offers assistance to non-profit organizations that are experiencing a hardship.

Under the Smart Grid law, enacted in 2011, ComEd committed $50 million for five years to help eligible customers with their utility bills.

“We realize some customers fall on hard times and need assistance with paying their monthly electric bill,” said Val Jensen, senior vice president of Customers Operations, ComEd. “Our goal is to help our customers maintain continual seamless electric service. This is why we want to ensure that customers who are in need of assistance are aware of the ComEd CARE programs and how they can receive financial relief during tough times.”

Last year through ComEd’s CARE programs, the utility was able to help more than 16,200 customers maintain their service. Service disconnection is always the last resort, and only occurs after a lengthy process that is designed to avoid this outcome. The $10 million for 2015 will provide relief to customers in need and help get them back on track to managing their utility bill. The utility is also running advertisements to increase awareness of the available funds and to encourage customers in need to apply for assistance.

In addition, through new legislation introduced in the Illinois General Assembly on March 19, ComEd is looking to extend this assistance. Under HB3328/SB1879, financial assistance programs will be extended for another five years through 2021, enabling ComEd and utilities serving more than 3 million customers to contribute $10 million per year to existing financial assistance programs or similar programs offered as a result of the Smart Grid law.

For more information on ComEd’s financial assistance programs, including eligibility requirements please visit ComEd.com/CARE or call 1-888-806-CARE (2273).

Please be aware that Garbage cans are not to be taken out until 6pm the night before pickup and removed from the curb side by 8pm on day of collection. This is not always the case for many. The Village Trustees have instructed the Police Department to enforce this ordinance.  A warning will be issued  for the first offense and a ticket will be issued on the second offense. A neon green sticker will be placed on your can as a warning. Please be aware this will be your one and only warning before a ticket is issued. Our goal is to keep our Village a beautiful and proud place to live. With your help we can achieve this.

Republic Waste 2014 Update



Crestwood Village ordinance prohibits parking on ANY village streest between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00a.m. The reason for this ordinance is so Police will be alerted to abandoned vehicles or suspicious vehicles that require investigations. This ordinance also ensures that all streets throughout the Village will be open to fire and rescue equipment in the event of an overnight emergency. This is especially necessary in areas where narrow streets can block large fire trucks. We will continue to enforce this ordinance. Thank You for your cooperation with this ordinance. The initial fine for this violation is $75.00. This is a Village wide ordinance. PLEASE BE SURE THAT YOUR LATE NIGHT AND OVERNIGHT GUESTS ARE MADE AWARE OF THIS AS WELL!


Crestwood Police Department Seeks Cadets


The Crestwood Police Department is looking for people between 14 and 19 years old
that would be interested in our Police Cadet Program. The main purpose of this program is to help develop leadership and communication skills for their future. While we focus on law enforcement and public safety, we work towards teaching these youths communication, leadership, chain of command and community services. In the past some of our training has included speakers and trainers from the FBI, Illinois State Police, Cook County Sheriff’s Police, Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and many others.

Our goal is to give them as much exposure as possible to a wide variety of people and operations to help them in thinking about good communications and future career possibilities. It is not necessary to specifically want to go into law enforcement . We use this as opportunity to teach them skills that will help provide them a start towards understanding what it is all about. Due to the nature of some of the things we deal with, we ask everyone to keep their activities here confidential so that we don’t violate anyone’s rights. Cadets are required to attend our meetings and trainings. We try and limit them to once a month during the school season; however we usually have additional meetings and trainings in the summer. Cadets also assist the community by providing us with park security, traffic control, and community events both in Crestwood as well as surrounding suburbs.

Applications are available at the Police Department Monday- Friday between 9-9


Please note stickers go on sale December 1, 2014. Stickers MUST be displayed by March 1 ,2015. After such date tickets will be issued.
