Teutopolis


Teutopolis, Illinois
 is a place where people and neighbors still look after each other’s kids, watch over each other’s houses, and share laughter and good times together. Teutopolis is located within three miles of Effingham, in the “Heartland of America” and still thrives on the discipline and values that have made Teutopolis a success for 175 years. We have a small town atmosphere with a limitless entrepreneurial spirit, cultural heritage, rural character and natural environment with a positive environment for business and industry. Community service is alive and well in T-Town. The region’s natural beauty, coupled with abundant amenities, makes it an excellent place to live. Village President, Greg Hess, welcomes all to the community. To contact Greg you may call 217-663-2108 or message him by email.

The Teutopolis Park District is aware of the Excessive Heat Warning for the next few days. The park district does NOT cancel games due to the heat; however, if a parent strongly feels that his/her child should not play, that parent should contact the coach at least 2 hours prior to the game to let the coach know that his/her child will not be playing. If the coach determines that the team does not have enough players to play the game, that coach should contact Kent Niebrugge, the Program Director, to cancel the game.

If a child is going to play, parents should take the proper precautions. Each player should have a water bottle to stay hydrated. A towel in a small cooler of ice water to wipe their face and arms down to stay cool is also a good idea. If a player begins to not feel well, that player should notify his/her coach immediately. The park district wants to give the kids the opportunity to play but, also wants the kids to be safe.

Canceling a game is never an easy decision. People get upset when you cancel a game. People get upset when you don’t. In this situation, the park district is letting the parents decide what is appropriate for their child.

Important Recycling Information

The Village of Teutopolis’ Recycling Program would like to thank the citizens and businesses for their generous donations to date and want to encourage continued support so that the Teutopolis Recycling program will be able to pay for the monthly pick-ups for the recycling program. All donations can be sent to the Village Hall at PO Box 776 or deposited in the drop box located at the recycling site.
We average 3-4 cardboard pick-ups every 2 weeks and 2 plastic dumpster pulls are picked up at the site each month. Sanitation Services charges $90 each time they pick up, which for Teutopolis is twice a month, and Chase’s Recycling is now charging approximately $80 per month to pick up our cardboard. Therefore, our monthly recycling expenses average $260 per month.
According to the Clean Air Council, on average, each one of us produces 4.4 pounds of solid waste each day, adding up to almost a ton of trash per person, per year and because of the recycling efforts in Teutopolis this amount of waste is being reduced and reused. We would hate to discontinue this service because it is such a valuable resource for Teutopolis and surrounding communities. Continue to reduce, reuse and support the Teutopolis Recycling Program.
