Town President Larry Dominick and the Town of Cicero Board of Trustees are urging everyone to take a moment to make sure that during this period of dangerous freezing temperatures we all do a well-being check on our neighbors, especially if they are seniors, disabled or single parent households with children.
Temperatures are in the teens and are expected to drop below zero on Wednesday, making it a very dangerous period for all.
If you do go outside, make sure to dress warm, especially the children.
Let’s come together as a community and help those in need.
Most Town of Cicero buildings are Warming Centers during working, daytime hours including the Town of Cicero Administration building at 4949 W. Cermak Road (8 AM until 8 PM, Mon-Thurs), and the Public Safety Office building at 5410 W 34th Street.
In addition, President Larry Dominick and the Town of Cicero Board of Trustees have designated the Cicero Community Center at 2250 S. 49th Avenue to be open 24 hours a day as a Temporary Warming Center through this freeze for families or individuals whose homes experience heating problems.
This is intended to help families with a place to go while seeking alternative accommodations until repairs can be made to their home heating.
