Lemont is a village in Cook, DuPage, and Will counties in Illinois and a suburb of Chicago. The population is estimated at 16,000. Lemont is home to Argonne National Laboratory and other heavy industrial sites, and has a substantial European immigrant population. Lemont's first settlers arrived in 1833. The town, then called Athens, began its development along the site of the Illinois & Michigan Canal that flows through the town. By 1848, the canal was completed and Lemont's population reached 3,000 people. In the 1890s, construction began on the Sanitary & Ship Canal. Lemont became a "wide open" town in those years to accommodate a population of 10,000 people. The 20th century brought industrialization with growth of steel, chemical and oil companies, and newer high tech complexes including Argonne National Laboratory and the Village has since grown into what it is today.

• Provide for administration, enforcement (including the abatement of public nuisances), and imposition of penalties.
