Mayor Frank Podbielniak and the Village Trustees recently attended a Groundbreaking Ceremony for a new Climate Controlled Storage Facility to be located in the 147th block of Western Ave. Below are pictures of the future site. More Developments to come!!!
Through the efforts of Mayor Podbielniak and the Village Beautification Committee the Village of Posen recently had lights installed at the Village’s Veterans Memorial Site at Veteran’s Drive and Cleveland Ave. This is the 2nd phase of improvements for the site. In the near future an Anti Aircraft Gun will go on display in the area just east of the flags and new landscaping will be added. A great improvement for the upcoming holiday!!!
Mayor Podbielniak has been working for the past 2 years with the Village of Dixmoor Mayor, Yvonne Davis in an effort to get the Street lights working along Western Avenue between 139th Street and 147th Street. We are happy to report that as of today, May 22nd all the lights are now working on Western Ave. It’s a tremendous improvement to the area to make it safer and more attractive to businesses. “Thank you Mayor Davis for all your efforts, it’s so great to have both Villages working together!!!” said Mayor Frank Podbielniak
