From the Desk of Union Village Clerk

Union has become a part of my life, as it has for so many of its 600 residents. It doesn’t seem to be a small town for the many people that keep it functioning the way a town should be.

Most of us that work in some capacity for the Village of Union also have a day job, but find the time to do our part.

As Union Village Clerk, I feel honored to work with a great team that pull together and makes sure the village is in their best interests. Our monthly board meetings are held every third Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend. We have a staffed police department, a building inspector, a water commissioner, and engineers.

There is so much to offer in Union if we take the time to look around or seek advice.

These include: three restaurants/pubs and banquet halls in town; a corner grocery; two parks; the McHenry County Historical Museum; the Illinois Railway Museum; bike trails; a restaurant and banquet hall just outside of town; two real estate firms; two banks; two churches; a post office; and many small businesses and manufacturing plants.
