 From The Mayor

Dear resident,

My name is Scott Nickles, and I am honored to serve you as Mayor of Round Lake Beach. Let me be one of the first people to congratulate you on becoming the newest of our 28,000 residents. We are exceptionally happy you chose to call Round Lake Beach your new home.

Round Lake Beach has long embraced its history while also keeping an eye on its future. In that regard, I’m sure you will join me very soon in claiming Round Lake Beach is the best community to live, work and play. The Village of Round Lake Beach was incorporated on January 19, 1937 following a vote of less than 200 people. Since then, we have grown to over 28,000 people in 5.2 square miles.

Our village board consists of six trustees, a village clerk and the mayor. Each of us are residents just like you and we are dedicated to keeping Round Lake Beach a wonderful place to live and conduct business. Our trustees are Margie Cleveland, Christy Davis, Chuck Husk, Martha Ibarra, Paul Stout and Sylvia Valadez. Our village clerk is Dana Hillesheim. Our contact information is on the website under government/elected officials. Do not hesitate to reach out to any of us should you ever require assistance.

Round Lake Beach Village Administrator Mark Rooney has been chosen to oversee the day-to-day operations of the village. Should you as a resident or business owner have any issues, feel free to contact the individual department you need through the village hall at (847) 546-2351 or stop in at 1937 Municipal Way. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday’s from 9 a.m. until noon. Then, if needed, reach out to the village administrator at village hall. 

People should also get to know Police Chief Gil Rivera, Grayslake Fire Protection District Chief Dan Pierre and Round Lake Area Fire Protection Chief Greg Formica. Do not hesitate to stop them and say hello should you see them. Should you ever need to contact them for a non-emergency issue, Chief Rivera can be reached at the non-emergency police number at (847) 546-2127, Chief Pierre at (847) 223-8960 and Chief Formica at the non-emergency fire protection district number at (847) 546-6001.

As far as street, sidewalk and other infrastructure issues, our director of Public Works is Scott Hilts. He oversees everything from the water and sewer lines running under the village streets to the days and times for leaf pickup. Should you have any problems or issues, do not hesitate to contact Scott at the public works department at (847) 546-8752. Also, the village of Round Lake Beach has a strong Community and Economic Development Department to assist new residents and business owners. Should you ever need them, feel free to again call village hall at (847) 546-2351.

The village does not have it's own parks department, but the Round Lake Area Park District is here to serve the residents. A link to their website is located at And lets not forget the Round Lake Area Library can be found at their website at There are numerous school districts that cover Round Lake Beach, all of which can be located in our "community links" section on the left side of this web page. 

As your Mayor, I always welcome the input we receive from our residents and business members. I promise to always be ready and willing to listen to any concerns and/or suggestions you bring forward. Working with our residents and businesses will ensure we continue to make Round Lake Beach the best town in Lake County.
