Lake County Town Hall Meeting
Residents often ask – what does the County do? The Lake County Board invests in 300 miles of county roads that you drive on every day, funds public safety and judicial agencies that work 24/7 to keep your family safe, and supports healthcare programs that contribute to the health and wellness of our residents and communities. All of these and many other vital services are funded with about 7% of your property tax bill and the County Board is working hard to stretch every penny. And, YOU have a say in how we prioritize and invest your tax dollars.

You’re invited to participate in our first-ever  Telephone Town Hall meeting  Dec. 13 at 7 p.m.  with Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor.  As the county board gets ready to update its strategic plan next year, we want to know what is important to you.  During the Telephone Town Hall, we will discuss our current priorities and you will be able to share your thoughts and ideas to make our county even better!

Winter Driving Tips
Severe weather can be both frightening and dangerous for automobile travel. Motorists should know the safety rules for dealing with winter road emergencies. AAA reminds motorists to be cautious while driving in adverse weather. For more information on winter driving, the association offers the  How to Go on Ice and Snow  brochure, available through most AAA offices. 
 

AAA recommends the following winter driving tips:

  • Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks.
  • Never run a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
  • Make certain your tires are properly inflated.
  • Keep your gas tank at least half full.
  • If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather.
  • Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand).
  • Always look and steer where you want to go.
  • Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle.
