Spring and School Success

Dear Cicero residents, Happy Spring! Okay, maybe it’s not yet spring, but the weather has been absolutely beautiful these past couple of weeks. I hope March will continue the warm weather.

From Town President Larry Dominick

Dear Cicero residents, January has been a mixed bag of weather. One week it is single digits or worse. The next week we are outside in t-shirts and shorts.

Busy September, Fun-Filled October

Dear Cicero residents, We certainly have had a lot going on in Cicero lately! Just before September rolled in, our Department of Parks and Recreation hosted a wonderful End of Summer Celebration, where many of you came out to say goodbye to the season with rides, music, and of course, fireworks. Shortly afterwards, we honored the thousands of lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, when terrorists forever changed the way we lived in this nation. [Learn More]
