Search for Shooter Ends, Suspect in Custody

You may have noticed a large police presence today, there were two McHenry county deputies shot early this morning.  Both officers are in stable condition. 

The suspect is in custody. 

Police departments from as far away as Aurora have responded.  A door to door search was conducted, 2 helicopters, an airplane and several teams of search dogs worked diligently to apprehend the suspect. 

The village of Holiday Hills worked very closely with McHenry County Sheriff’s Department, Illinois State Police, and the many other agencies to protect our families and homes.

Planning a home improvement job?  Planting a tree?  Installing a fence or deck?  WAIT!  This is what you need to know first.  Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling JULIE at 811 before each job.  Homeowners often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked, but every digging job requires a call – even small projects like planting trees and shrubs.
