WAIVER OF FEES EXTENDED TO 2023

In September of 2018, village board members voted to extend a waiver of building permit and water and sewer connection fees for new construction in the Prairie Knoll subdivision west of Hwy. Rt. 150.  The extension is good through September of 2023.  

Construction of a $250,000 house could result in a savings of more than $3,000.

Cross-Connection Control Survey - It's That Time Again

Every other year, the Village is required by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency to obtain Cross-Connection Control Surveys completed by each property owner in Orion.  A Cross-Connection Control Survey can be found by clicking on the Downloads tab at the top of this page, select General then Water - Cross Connection Control Survey, print a copy, complete, and return to Village Hall.  You might have done this before, but it needs to be completed again.

If you do not complete a survey, village employees will come to your door and complete it with you.  Your cooperation is appreciated and essential to maintaining compliance.

Questions?  Call us at 309-526-8139.  We can help!

Applicance/E-Waste Disposal
Those wishing to dispose of appliances may contact Joel Conrad at 1.309.945.1944 or Mike DePaepe at 1.309.235.2188 for private disposal.


Another Option for E-Waste
Eagle Enterprises Recycling, Inc. is pleased to announce the opening of an electronics collection site at its facility in Galva. Beginning January 2012, the number of electronic items banned at landfills will be expanded, making it ever more difficult to dispose of those televisions, computer monitors, printers, and the like.

Electronic recyclables cannot be combined with residential recyclables, so DO NOT put electronics in your curbside bin. Electronics can only be disposed of by transporting them to 510 S. E. Industrial Avenue, Galva, during Eagle's business hours of 6:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. on Saturdays.  There is a charge for televisions and computer monitors:  screens 27" or less are $5, 28" or more are $10, console t.v.s are $10, and rear projection t.v.s are $20.

For more information contact Eagle Enterprises Recycling at 1.888.932.2936 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
