Summer in the Park and Summertime Weather

Dear Cicero residents, I hope your summer has started off well. It has for us at Town Hall. In the past month, we’ve seen many children come to our Summer in the Park events, enjoying our many themes, such as Western Week, a Wild West Rodeo, Art in the Park and even Fitness Week. As the month ended, we had many residents and families come out to the fairgrounds to celebrate AmericanFest, our annual celebration [Learn More]

AmericanFest and More

Dear Cicero residents, It may seem like winter was just yesterday, but school is nearly over, the weather has warmed up, and Cinco de Mayo was a great success. That can mean only one thing. Summertime is here. Cinco de Mayo continues to amaze me. We have had large crowds come out every year to celebrate Mexican-American pride and enjoy the attractions and live music we offer. It’s no wonder Cicero has become THE place [Learn More]

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo and Keeping Cicero CLEAN

Dear Cicero residents, May is here and that means it’s time to celebrate Cinco de Mayo! This is one of the biggest festivals, not only for Cicero but for all of the Chicagoland Area. We have many live bands, great food and wonderful rides for the thousands of people who will flock to the Cicero Fairgrounds at 34th and Laramie from May 6 through May 8. I hope to see many of you there! +++++ [Learn More]

Creating a Better Financial Future for the Cicero

Dear Cicero residents, One of the biggest priorities of my administration from Day One was to clean up the financial mess in our town. When I took office, Cicero had a poor credit rating and millions of dollars of debt brought on by previous administrations. Throughout the past 11 years, we have worked to pay down that debt, reform our finances to avoid borrowing new money, and do our best to keep the town’s property [Learn More]

Happy New Year!

Dear Cicero residents, Happy New Year! It’s hard to believe how fast 2015 flew right by us. But it was a grand year for the New Cicero. Between the many programs offered — Three Kings Day; the Senior Christmas Dinner; Summer in the Park; Father/Daughter and Mother/Son dances; the start of ice-skating season at the Bobby Hull Community Ice Rink; and the Easter events in the spring — there was always something going on in [Learn More]

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Families are gathering together throughout the world at this time of year to share the love, remember Christmases of old, and create new memories and traditions with loved ones. I am grateful to be able to spend this Christmas with my children and grandchildren and extremely thankful we will gather together in [Learn More]

Larry’s Monthly Column: Christmastime is Here

Dear Cicero residents, Christmastime is definitely here. 2015 has been one filled with many memorable events in the Town: from successful festivals such as Cinco de Mayo and Houby Day to a summer of family-focused fun throughout the New Cicero.

From Larry Dominick: Happy Thanksgiving

Dear Neighbors, I wanted to take a few moments to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. This is a truly American holiday. Many of us probably remember the First Thanksgiving story between Pilgrims and Native Americans, but it wasn’t until the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.” Since that day, we have taken time to give thanks for the many [Learn More]

Thanksgiving and Christmas

Dear Cicero residents, The holiday season is upon us and that means there will be many wonderful events for Cicero residents to come out and enjoy everything the Town has to offer. On November 29, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, the Town will kick off the Christmas season with our annual Christmas in the Park celebration. This event is really exciting for many of our residents because it is the day we officially open the Bobby [Learn More]

Houby Days and Halloween

What a wonderful September month we had in Cicero. The weather was mostly pleasant. School is in full swing. And Mexican Independence Day was just as fantastic as always! This year’s festival featured some really great musical acts, wonderful supporters marching down Cermak for the parade and a great El Grito ceremony to finish off the night. Also, congratulations to Amber Moreno for winning Seniorita Cicero. I know you will make this Town proud! I [Learn More]
