Kane County Electronics Recycling Program
The Kane County Electronics Recycling Program has resumed and includes three daily drop-off locations throughout the county, as well as the reopening of the one-day collection events in St. Charles. The closest site for Batavia residents is the former Kane County Jail property at 517 Fabyan Parkway, between Route 25 and Kirk Rd. on the north side of the street. Most items are still free, but there will be a charge for TVs and computer monitors, depending on the screen size. Please visit the Kane County Recycles webpage for information about drop off locations, upcoming monthly events, acceptable/unacceptable electronics items, and costs/payment options.
2016 Sanitary Sewer Smoke Testing
The city has contracted RJN Group of Wheaton to perform smoke testing of the sewer lines in the Cherry Park area. This testing will begin early next week. The smoke is non-toxic, low odor, creates no fire hazard, leaves no residue, dissipates quickly, and is harmless.
Field crews will be providing door hangers to residents 24-72 hours before testing that particular area. Signs will be placed throughout the neighborhood, and a link has been established on the City’s website: http://www.cityofbatavia.net/671/2016-Cherry-Park-Sanitary-Sewer

Kane County 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan Survey Available
Kane County is updating the 2040 Long-Range Transportation Plan and needs your help to identify the top priorities and areas of improvement the plan should address. The plan will become a long-term guide to improve the conditions of roadways, public transportation, bicycle and pedestrian travel, economic vitality, and help to prioritize infrastructure funding decisions. The result will lead to a higher quality of life for stakeholders in Kane County.
The County launched an interactive online survey, where participants can easily use their computer, tablet or smart phone to provide their feedback. This interactive survey takes less than 5 minutes and will play a key role in helping us to shape the future of Kane County’s Long Range Transportation Plan.
Share your vision for Kane County! You have through December 5, 2016 to take the survey in English or Spanish.
