Message from the Village President

Greetings to all residents and businesses in Matteson.

While we have been very fortunate to be experiencing a moderately mild winter; I would like to take a moment and commend the Public Works Department on managing the problems that have arisen from falling temperatures and weather related issues. Under the direction of Bart Gilliam and Gordon Hardin, Public Works employees handled any and all severe weather events in their usual professional and no nonsense manner, while keeping our streets and walkways clean and safe.

I would like to welcome Benjamin Wilson as our new Director of Economic Development. Mr. Wilson brings valuable experience and expertise to the Village and we are excited to have him on board.

Welcome to South Suburban Mitsubishi as the newest addition to our Auto Mall. We are excited to have them in our community and wish them great success in their new location. Keep your eyes open for a notice of their grand opening sometime in March.

The Board of Trustees, Village Clerk and I continue to work diligently with the Economic Development Team to pursue opportunities that benefit the Village of Matteson and our residents. There will be additional exciting economic development related announcements to come within the next few months. Like the season itself; the Village is positioned for new beginnings and growth.

Happy Easter to you and your family and on behalf of the Ashmore Family, we wish you Godspeed until we meet again.

Andrè B. Ashmore, Village President
