Many families in the Houston Independent School District have been devastated by the catastrophic flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. Lake Bluff's elementary and middle schools are collecting donations of new and unused clothing, shoes, underwear, socks, uniforms, school supplies, canned food, and bottled water that can help Houston students recover and prepare for the coming school year. Please, consider dropping off a contribution at either campus.

All questions should be directed to the Agency directly at (847) 377-7100.


Lake County has received a State disaster proclamation due to the widespread flooding in our region. This can open the door for federal assistance. Disaster recovery is a multi-step process starting with an initial damage assessment, which is now underway. Lake County is working with local municipalities and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) to conduct the assessment. The US Civil Air Patrol is currently capturing aerial photography of the flooded areas.

We need a complete and accurate damage assessment report that includes damages incurred in both incorporated and unincorporated Lake County. The detail within this report will help determine eligibility for federal assistance.

The Lake Bluff Police Department wants to remind all residents to keep their car windows rolled up, doors locked, and valuables out of sight when your car is parked unattended. 

When riding bikes, be sure to lock them in bike racks, and keep them in a closed and locked garage overnight.

Lastly, if you see anyone suspicious, call the Police!  Together we can help keep Lake Bluff the safe community we all enjoy!
