Infrastructure impacts everyone in our community, from residents to business owners to visitors. Maintaining reliable infrastructure is critically important to health and quality of life in Roselle.

Infrastructure includes our streets and sidewalks, water system, wastewater treatment and collection, stormwater, and buildings and grounds. 

How does the Village maintain Roselle's infrastructure?

To maintain our community's infrastructure, the Village manages several annual infrastructure improvement programs, such as:

  • Street Improvement
  • Street Maintenance
  • Sidewalk Replacement
  • Streetlight Replacement
  • Water Main Replacement
  • Backflow Prevention
  • Storm Sewer Improvements
  • Yard Flooding Assistance

The Village systematically reviews infrastructure needs to prioritize and plan for future updates. View the 2023-2027 Capital Improvement Plan in the FY 2023 Budget, which also includes more information about the annual infrastructure programs above.
