Welcome from the Village President…

Dear Residents:

Germantown is best described as a vibrant and secure community that is a great place to live, raise a family or retire. I believe volunteers are what make Germantown such a great place to live! Most every organization and taxing district of Germantown is based on volunteers. Without those volunteers, the Village on a whole would suffer. Thank you to all those who give their time! I look forward to the future and believe Germantown has many good things in store!

Duane Ripperda



THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 2021  –  On behalf of the Village of Germantown, thank you to all our volunteers and participants in Wednesday’s COVID Vaccine Clinic in Germantown!  Volunteerism is the heart of this town and we always pull together in times of need and each of our volunteers proved that!  Wednesday’s vaccine clinic was a huge success and paved the way for other communities to do the same!!!  We vaccinated 260 people! Everything ran smoothly and we had the most gracious, appreciative people come through!  The Health Department is a well-oiled machine and with their guidance and leadership everything ran smoothly!!   Duane Ripperda, Village President

Contractors will be starting the project as of Thursday, November 5, 2020.  The Sewer Replacement will start first with the Water Replacement to follow.  We ask for your patience and understanding. We apologize for the inconvenience this has on our residents and businesses as we maneuver through this project.

NOTICE: Mill, Main, and Church Street Water and Sewer Replacements

 The Village of Germantown, Illinois will complete water and sewer replacement projects this Fall 2020.  Funding for these projects is being provided by low interest loans from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency’s Public Water Supply Loan Program (PWSLP) for the water and the Water Pollution Control Loan Program (WPCLP) for the sewer.  These programs are funded by both state and federal sources.  The loans have an interest rate of 1.01% and will be repaid in 30 years.  Additionally, the Village received $400,000 loan principal forgiveness on the water loan qualifying as a small community (less than 25,000).
