The Environmental Committee reports to the Village Board on various environmental issues concerning the well-being of the residents and community as a whole.

The Environmental Committee has overseen the Arbor Day sapling distribution to local schools, planting of bulbs in various parks, and has organized the Adopt-A-Highway program along Old McHenry Road. They study and make recommendations to the Village Board on environmental concerns such as leaf burning, emerald ash borer, gypsy moth disease, and dutch elm disease.
