The village of Worth was incorporated 1914. 10,000 years ago, Worth was one of Lake Michigan's ancient beaches, rising 40 feet over the present day Lake Michigan. The Village of Worth is surrounded by historic waterways. The north border touches the 14,000 year-old water way Stony Creek. Worth's south border is the Calumet-Sag Channel, completed in 1922 and an intricate part of the Illinois Waterway. Worth is also home to one of the five Metropolitan Water District's aeration waterfalls.
From The Building Commissioner I would like to remind everyone about having work done by the professionals. When a company offers its services, it's generally a good idea to ask if the company is bonded, licensed, and insured. Oftentimes someone who isn't will be cheaper, but you will have to accept all of the responsibility and liabilities if something bad happens. All companies doing business in the Village are required to be registered. You can call the Village to check if you are unsure. Before starting a job, you will need to obtain a permit. You or a company cannot start a job without a permit. Permits are required so that you will protect the outcome and investment value of your project to guard against a lawsuit or injury. By working with our inspectors, you will benefit from their knowledge and ensure your project is done right, safely, and will last. After the job is complete, a qualified inspector will come out for the final approval. If you have any questions about a job you are starting, please contact the Village.
