As Director of Public Works I am responsible for monitoring a number of vital services for the Village. One of those services is the collection of refuse and recycling. In 2006 the Village selected Roy Strom from a group of qualified hauling companies that responded to a Village Request for Proposal. The service program operated by Strom has substantially reduced costs for the Village and met the Village’s service specifications. From day one the company has been responsive to the Village and our residents. Literally, no matter what the situation Roy Strom has responded in a prompt and professional manner.

During major flood incidents the past couple of years Strom responded quickly and efficiently assisting both individual citizens and the Village. They coordinated directly with the Village to ensure all additional debris was removed, while not skipping a regular collection service beat! Strom also assisted the Village by providing detailed information to the Village for FEMA and interacting directly with FEMA representatives.

Strom also has demonstrated they are a pro-active service provider. Utilizing a partnership business relationship approach, Strom has proposed working together with the Village to: make the residential service program more responsive to residents needs, enhance recycling efforts, assist the Village better control waste related service costs, and explore service formats that will offset costs for the Village and our residents in upcoming years.
