December Meeting Focuses on Public UtilitiesDo you know what's in store for your monthly water and electric bills in 2014? Join us on Saturday morning, December 14th when the monthly meeting of the Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation hears from the City of Naperville Department of Public Utilities, the people responsible for providing our power and moving water into and out of our homes. Our meeting will begin at 8 AM (for coffee and networking) in meeting rooms B&C of the Naperville Municipal Center.
Representatives of Naperville’s municipally owned electric and water and wastewater utilities will be in attendance to bring us up to date on their projects, new programs, and provide insights into what will happen to our utility bills in the months ahead. With both formal presentations and time for questions and dialogue, we expect this to be an enlightening session.
We will also spend a few minutes looking at the budget requests from various entities that, when totaled together, will manifest themselves into our Real Estate Tax bills in May.
Coffee and networking for this meeting will be sponsored by Great Western Flooring.
As always we promise to bring the meeting to a close at 10 AM so you can get on with your day. We hope to see you on Saturday, December 14th!

Get in the Know with Naper NotifyThe City of Naperville has launched Naper Notify, a new notification system that brings emergency and quality-of-life information from the City directly to the communication device of one’s choosing. The public is encouraged to sign up at www.napernotify.com to quickly and efficiently receive important City messages.
Naper Notify will be used to communicate two types of messages to the public: Emergency Notifications and Community Notifications. If a person signs up for the system, they will automatically receive all emergency notifications sent either citywide or to an impacted area in which they are located. Community Notifications are voluntary; the public can choose which type of notification, if any, they wish to receive.
To sign up, visit www.napernotify.com. This page will provide more information about the system as well as a link to the public sign-up portal. Individuals who need assistance registering for Naper Notify can email email@example.com and a City staff member will contact the person to assist.
