Food service establishments

The following resources are intended for use by business owners, operators, and employees of food service establishments:

Vacant Property Registration

The Village considers buildings to be vacant if they remain boarded or in a state of deterioration for more than six months and/or no longer have a current property listing contract. As such, vacant properties are detrimental to public health and safety, contribute to the decrease in value of surrounding properties, precipitate disinvestment by neighboring owners, provide a potential location for criminal activity, and undermine the aesthetic character of the neighborhood and the Village.

It is the obligation of the owner of a vacant property, per Village  ordinance, to register any vacant property and file & implement an ongoing maintenance plan. Vacant property must be registered annually.  The form below must be filled out and a $200 application fee paid.

Mosquito control and West Nile Virus

Most of Glenview east of Pfingsten Road is included in the North Shore Mosquito Abatement District (847) 446-9434. The area south of Central Road and west of Washington Road is included in the Northwest Mosquito Abatement District (847) 537-2306. The area west of Pfingsten Road between Central Road and Willow Road is covered by the Cook County Department of Public Health (708) 633-4000).

Coal tar sealants banned

Effective May 1, 2018, asphalt sealants made from coal tar cannot be sold or applied in Glenview. The Village Board of Trustees banned coal tar sealants due to their high levels of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs, a class of chemicals that are persistent in the environment. Certain PAHs are either known or suspected carcinogens, as well as toxic to aquatic environments. In addition, sealants wear off over time and the chemicals are transported by stormwater runoff into our waterways.

Residents who wish to seal pavement themselves can continue to do so. Sealants sold at major retailers such as Ace Hardware, Home Depot, Lowes and others have phased out coal tar products.

Homeowners or businesses contracting for sealcoat services should ask up front if the product contains coal tar. Glenview now requires that any person engaging in pavement sealing have a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) available on the premises for the product being used for pavement sealing. Review the product label or request a copy of the MSDS. Avoid products labeled with any of these chemical numbers or names, beginning with CAS for Chemical Abstract Service: 8007-45-2; 65996-93-2; 65996-89-6; 65996-90-9; 65996-91-0; 65996-92-1

The product goes under the names: coal tar, coal tar pitch, coal tar distillate and RT-12.
