WARNING

Some door to door solicitors of electrical energy may have made fraudulent claims that the City has authorized them to view existing energy contracts. This is not true. We suggest that you do not share any existing documents, contracts or bills with unknown door to door salespersons. This information alone may allow them to switch your electrical provider, even without your permission.

Belvidere Police Chief Jan Noble would like to remind residents about tips for solicitors that come to your home: -Ask for identification -Verify the individual and company -Inquire if they've obtained a permit from the city to solicit -Read any contract or agreement carefully -Don't be pressured -Listen carefully -Know your rights. The Federal Trade Commission's Three Day Cooling-Off Rule gives the consumer 3 days to cancel purchases over $25.00 that are made in their home or at a location that is not the seller's permanent place of business. -If you aren't interested in speaking with a solicitor, tell them so and ask them to leave.

In the event you should encounter an unscrupulous solicitor, try to obtain a physical description of the person(s)and report that information to the Belvidere Police Department (815)544-2135.

The City of Belvidere is currently accepting proposals for independent audit services.

Sewer Backups

Connection of storm water sump pumps to the City's sanitary sewer system is prohibited. Such connections quickly overload the system in severe rain events and may cause sewers to back up. Residents may receive notice to schedule an appointment for an inspection. Please respond within the time specified to assist the Department with preventing future sanitary sewer backups. If you have questions or concerns, please call 815-544-9256.
