The regulations set forth that it is unlawful to smoke within 20 feet of an open air dining area; within 20 feet of any public entrance; and within 20 feet of an operable window or ventilation air intake. For further information about the law, please contact the Village Manager’s Office.
CARBON MONOXIDE ALARM DETECTORS REQUIRED IN EVERY HOME
Effective January 1, 2007, the State legislature passed the Illinois carbon Monoxide Alarm Detector Act, requiring every dwelling unit in Illinois to have at least one approved carbon monoxide alarm in an operating condition within 15 feet of every room used for sleeping purposes. Alarms can be battery powered, plug-in with battery back-up or wired into the AC power line with a secondary battery back-up. If a structure contains more than one “dwelling unit,” an alarm must be installed within 15 feet of every sleeping room in each “dwelling unit.” The owner must supply and install all required alarms. A landlord must ensure that the alarms are operable on the date of initiation of a lease. The tenant is responsible for testing and maintaining the alarm after the lease commences.
