Grace Wherley and Malia Fairbanks, along with the Sadorus All-Stars 4-H club seek donations from the community to further conduct project plans to build new “Welcome to Tolono” signs. Please see the attached article for donation information.
The Village of Tolono wants to remind everyone that Side-By-Side off-highway devices must be registered with the Village before they can be driven on our streets as do all golf carts.
The fine for failure to secure a permit when operating a golf cart and/or recreational off-highway device on Village streets is $250.
Please read Golf Carts & Other Similar Devices
If you have any questions please call Village Hall at 217-485-5212.
The Village maintenance crew will be burning at the landscape waste facility beginning Monday, March 29, and will continue throughout the week, weather permitting. Please use caution when driving through the area. This facility is located at the East end of E Main St as you are leaving town.
The Village of Tolono will conduct leaf collection on April 6th and 7th, and again on April 13th and 14th, weather permitting. Leaves will be collected by our leaf vacuum truck.
- To avoid obstructing drainage and causing equipment damage, place leaves at curbside:
- not in the drainage ditches or on drainage grates,
- not on the sidewalks or edges of driveways and streets (but also not so far into yards that equipment vacuums can’t reach the leaves).
- not over water meter covers or sewer caps, and
- not over any other obstructions or items that may be sucked into the vacuum truck.
- Do not mix leaves with trash, pumpkins, limbs, brush, sticks, rocks, bricks, or the like. Leaves containing these materials may be bypassed in order to prevent equipment damage and collection delays.
- Do not wet leaves. Frozen leaves may damage vacuum equipment.
- Do not block leaf piles with vehicles.
- If you notice drainage grates clogged in your area, please call 217-485-5212 to request cleaning.

Brush pickup resumes Monday, March 1, 2021. Please see the attached notice for acceptable and non-acceptable items. Paper bags of landscape waste must have stickers purchased from Village Hall. Stickers are $3 each.
Village Maintenance crew requests that landscape waste be put as close to the road as possible. The ground is very soft currently and they would like to avoid putting ruts in yards. If waste is too far off the side of the road, they may not be able to pick up.
Sidewalk panels throughout the Village of Tolono have been removed for either repair or replacement. Once these areas are removed, they are marked with yellow caution tape. Please use caution when walking or running in these areas. If the sidewalk repair/replacement is in or around your driveway, these residents may need to make plans to park elsewhere.
Sidewalk replacement will continue this week through next, pending weather (12/7-12/18). If there are sidewalk panels with a blue “X” in front of your home, please be sure to make room so the contractor can get to these areas to remove and replace.
Once the concrete is poured we ask that you do not walk or drive on the area for at least 48 hours.
The last brush pick up for the 2020 season will be Monday, November 16. We will continue to pick up leaves as weather allows. Please do not mix sticks or other miscellaneous yard waste with leaves.
Leaf pick up in the Village of Tolono will begin either Monday, October 26th or Tuesday, October 27th. Please be sure to get the leaves to the side of the street over the weekend. Thank you!
