Mundelein Mayor Proclaims State of Disaster Due to Significant Flooding

On July 13, 2017, under authority of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency Act, Village of Mundelein Mayor Steve Lentz signed a proclamation declaring that severe flooding has created a disaster in Mundelein. The proclamation was sent to Governor Bruce Rauner and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.

This decision was made based on recommendations from the Village Administrator, Public Safety Director, Chief Deputy Fire Chief, and the Director of Public Works for the following reasons:

Significant rainfall, high winds, and severe flooding conditions, causing substantial damage to private and public properties throughout Mundelein. As such, the proclamation states that “all Village of Mundelein departments are ordered to proceed with all haste to bring said disaster to a rapid conclusion for the best interests of Mundelein residents, pursuant to 20 ILCS 3305/11 of the Illinois Emergency Management Act and Village of Mundelein Ordinance 13-08-53.”
