In an effort to promote a healthy community and environment where children come to play and participate in sports, the Village of Johnsburg recently posted an ordinance restricting smoking in Village parks.

In doing so, signs will be placed at all of our parks to notify individuals of the restrictions. The Community Affairs Committee, along with the Village of Johnsburg, will be holding a contest for the sign design. Submissions are being accepted now through Feb. 1, 2014.
