The Vernon Hills Public Works Department hosts an Open House for residents and their families to experience a behind-the-scenes look at what skill-sets, tools, and equipment are required to maintain the Village's infrastructure. This event takes place at the Vernon Hills Public Works Facility located at 490 Greenleaf Drive every other year in Fall. The event includes truck and equipment displays, hands-on activities for kids, free give-aways, food, and much more. The next Public Works Open House is scheduled for September 15, 2015 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM. Event is free.
