Test Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms Monthly

Carbon Monoxide (CO), aka "the invisible killer", is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced when fuel burns incompletely. CO can cause serious illness or even death.

Risk of CO poisoning increases in winter due to the increased use of indoor heating sources and less ventilation.

Protect your household by being aware of sources of carbon monoxide and minimizing exposure, knowing the symptoms of dangerous levels of CO exposure in humans and pets, and by installing and maintaining CO detectors outside of sleeping areas and on all levels of your home or business, and testing your CO and smoke alarms once per month.

Should you have questions, please contact the West Dundee Fire Department at 847-551-3805.

Living with Wildlife in West Dundee

Coyote sightings are a common occurrence, especially in winter. While coyotes are not considered to be a public health concern, residents throughout the Dundee area should be reminded to keep a close watch on pets when outdoors, and eliminate sources of food or shelter that would encourage coyotes and other wild animals to frequent your property.

The "Living with Wildlife in Illinois" website is a cooperative effort between the University of Illinois Extension and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. It is designed to assist with human-wildlife conflicts and increase awareness of applicable Illinois conservation laws. This site includes helpful tips to reduce attractions around your home that may lead to unwanted close encounters. Click the link below for more information specifically regarding coyotes.

The above mentioned site states that if you are approached by a coyote, do not run. Yell, stand up straight and wave your arms to make yourself appear larger, or throw something at the coyote to scare it away.

If you should observe a wild animal that appears sick or injured, please contact QuadCom dispatch at 847-428-8784 (or 9-1-1).

Dundee-Crown Business Incubator Program Seeks Volunteers

Have you heard about the new INCubatoredu program at Dundee-Crown High School?

INCubatoredu@dchs provides students the opportunity to learn firsthand the ins and outs of starting a business. The 100+ students enrolled in the program work in teams to create, and fully develop, their own product or service resulting in a functioning business. We are looking for community members, business leaders, and entrepreneurs to help guide and mentor our students as they form their very own businesses.

If you have any questions about the program or the volunteer roles please contact our INCubatoredu@dchs course instructor: Nick Pahl at nicholas.pahl@d300.org.

More information is available on our website:

Electrical Aggregation Rate Update

UPDATE May 1, 2016: Since the Village of West Dundee last renewed the pricing for our electrical aggregation program (2014), pricing of all commodities has seen an unprecedented drop. For instance the price of gasoline a year and a half ago was $4.50 per gallon has been cut in half. Similarly, electrical pricing has seen a significant price decrease over the last year.

As such, the recently released Com Ed base rate of 6.275 cents per kWh through May, 2017 is considerably lower than the Village’s current electric aggregation program rate of 7.57 cents per kWh.

We in the Village are encouraging residents to switch back to ComEd for the duration of the Village’s program (August 2017). The Village’s program has no early termination fee, so any resident wanting to move to the lower ComEd rate may do so with no penalty by calling the Village’s current supplier, Constellation Energy, at 1-844-309-6310.

Please note that neither the Village nor ComEd can switch your account. You must call Constellation at the above-referenced number in order to do so. Prior to calling, please have your ComEd account number on hand in order to expedite the call.

The Illinois Commerce Commission maintains a "Price to Compare" to assist Illinois residents in understanding how various electricity rate offers compare with the current ComEd rate. More information can be found at www.pluginillinois.org.
