The Erie Police Department would like to clear up some misconceptions about stray animals reported to law enforcement and later turned over to Whiteside County Animal Control.  If Whiteside County Animal Control recovers an animal, every effort is made to contact the rightful owner.  In the event the owner of an animal cannot be located, animal control will work with local no-kill shelters to find the animal a new home.  Whiteside County Animal Control would only euthanize an animal that is a threat to the public should it be released.  With that said, please have your pets in a secure area and see to it they are micro-chipped.  This will help reunite a pet with the owner if they get loose.


It's that time of year again...
Cleanup at the Erie Cemetery will be Monday April 1st.
All plastic flowers,pots, wreaths, grave blankets, etc must be removed before said date or they will be discarded.
You may start decorating again on Monday April 8th.
Thank you.

From the Erie Police Department


Everyone is encouraged to stop by the PD and get to know your officers.  Although we enforce the laws and ordinances, we here at the Erie Police Department, wish to remain active in our community.  Our Officers strive to be positive role models for the youth and a helping hand for those in need.  Also, if there are any community organizations that would like an officer to speak during a monthly meeting, please let us know and we will make arrangements.       

Thank You,

Chief Rollie Elder 




Spring is getting closer!

Village of Erie Electricity Aggregation Program


Recently there have been questions asked about the Municipal Electricity Aggregation program in the Village of Erie. New residents have just received a letter regarding the program which prompted others who have been in the program to have questions. We hope this information will help you better understand the program.  

All power produced by the nuclear power plants in Illinois is put into the grid.  ComEd is not affected directly by the power output of the plants since their power is secured by the Illinois Power Agency twice a year from the grid and the energy rates are set by ComEd and approved by the Illinois Commerce Commission.  Suppliers, like mc2 for the Village of Erie also purchase their power from the grid.  The energy contract that the Village secured with mc2 was by competitively bidding the entire communities load and the Village Board choose the supplier and term based on lowest costs.  This is measured against the ComEd rate.  Residents and small business are included in the mc2 bid but do have the option of opting out of the program.  ComEd is indifferent to whether you get power from them, or from a 3rd party supplier.  They make their money on the delivery service which guarantees them a % return on their investment in their infrastructure  of Poles, wires and transformers. They do not make any money on the energy portion of the bill.

The Village of Erie Municipal Aggregation is with mc2 at $0.06990kWh through September 2021.

The current ComEd residential electric supply rate is $0.07219/kWh.


For more information, you can call mc 2 at 1-855-575-9231 or email your questions to





The Village of Erie will be replacing all Water Meters in order to upgrade the system over the next few months.  The Public Works Department will be replacing the meters and will be focusing on small sections of town at a time.  Each section will receive a letter when they are getting ready to work in that area. When residents receive this letter, they are asked to follow the directions to schedule an appointment to have their meter replaced.  Any questions, call the Village Office at 659-7740.



Garbage and Recycling Toters

 The toters must be set out the night before or no later than 6:00 am on your pick up day.

 It is possible that you will not get them emptied if they are not out by 6:00 am.  Thank you!
