With a Midwest winter undoubtedly comes snow and ice. Every single department in the Village is preparing to make the winter season as smooth as possible for residents. On pages 8 and 9 of this issue of the Pride, you’ll fi nd a feature story about Lombard’s newest salt dome. What’s great about this Village facility is the money it could save us all. By being able to purchase salt at the lowest market price and store it in a covered structure, we’ll be able to cut down on expenses - and that’s always a plus.
Also in the horizon is the New Year. Here at Village Hall, we’re welcoming a new Village Manager to the staff in 2014. We’re excited to see what ideas this new leader has for Lombard. The Village Board and myself look forward to working with the new Village Manager next year and beyond. In November, the Village held its annual Veterans Day Ceremony at Lombard Common Park. Thank you to everyone who came out and took a moment to remember our veterans. While this holiday is important, acknowledging those who serve our country to protect freedom should not be a once-a-year event. Especially during the holidays, please keep those who are serving overseas in your thoughts and prayers. They deserve our support during a time of year they’ll miss their families most. The Village is continuing to move forward in its ability to communicate with residents and we welcome your suggestions. Be sure to friend the Village on Facebook (facebook.com/VillageofLombard
) and follow us on Twitter (@LilacVillage). Send any thoughts or feedback to communications@villageofl ombard.org

The holiday season is the time of year when I hope everyone, regardless of religion, takes time to slow down, be thankful and spend time with family and friends.
Winter is especially wonderful in Lombard and
kicks off with a full day of activities at Jinglebell Jubilee on Saturday, December 7. From the lighting of Lilacia Park, to Santa’s arrival by fi re engine, to horse-drawn carriage rides down Main Street, there are many wonderful events to enjoy.
