Prescribed Burns Spring 2020

Libertyville Township uses prescribed burning as a management tool to restore and maintain healthy natural areas on its Open Space. These burns take place when native plants are dormant. Prescribed fire is one of the most efficient and cost effective tools for managing natural areas.Safety is our highest priority. Our crews are professionally trained and equipped; our primary concern is for the safety of people and property. Weather is a key factor in determining when and where a burn can take place. Brush piles are also burned throughout the year to dispose of woody debris.

Weather and conditions permitting, the following Libertyville Township Open Space properties slated for a prescribed burn Spring 2020: Old School, St. Mary's Road, Casey South, Casey North and Rt. 137. 

If you have any questions or health concerns or you wish to be notified the day of burn activities, please call the Libertyville Township Open Space District at 847.362.9760.


Libertyville Township’s Mosquito Abatement Program

Libertyville Township has engaged Clarke Environmental Mosquito Management, Inc. to provide six adult mosquito control applications this season. The Road District has placed mosquito dunks, a larvicide, into the storm sewer catch basins in the unincorporated areas.

For unincorporated Township residents who have standing water on their property, mosquito dunks are available for pick-up. The mosquito dunks slowly release a long term, biological mosquito larvicide. The Township’s services are meant to be in addition to preventative measures undertaken by homeowners and businesses. 

To be notified of the nighttime adult mosquito applications, sign up with the following link: www.clarkeportal.com/hotline. You can receive an autodial message, a text or email. In addition, you can report if mosquitoes are particularly bad in your neighborhood and if there is standing water that may need to be treated by calling the Mosquito Hotline (800) 942-2555.
