Steger is a village that straddles the border that separates Cook County and Will County, Illinois. The village is 35 miles south of Chicago and platted along the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad and the Vincennes/Hubbard's Trail with a population estimated at 9,570. Steger was founded in 1891 by Chicago real estate interests. The village was initially named Columbia Heights in honor of the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition which the City of Chicago had been preparing to host since 1889. In 1893, John Valentine Steger opened a piano factory on 20 acres of land alongside the railroad. The village incorporated in 1896 with 324 residents and has since grown into the bustling community it is today.
Building Permits are issued by the Building Department and are intended to keep homeowners and job sites safe. The Building Department will inspect the job for zoning compliance, safety and protect the general welfare of residents and the community. Inspectors will also require contractors to be license and bonded with the Village to insure your property. It is in the best interest of the homeowner that permits and inspections are completed by the Village of Steger Building Department.
The homeowner is permitted to make improvements to his/her home. If a homeowner chooses to complete the work him/herself; a deposit is required to be left with the Village. The deposit insures that all inspections and permits will be completed. After the work has passed final inspection, the deposit is returned to the homeowner. Any contractor hired by the homeowner must be licensed and bonded with the Village of Steger. It is the homeowner’s responsibility to secure a Building Permit. Failure to do so may result in a fine.
