New, easy to remember email addresses have been established for the two divisions: PublicWorks@deerfield.il.us and Engineering@deerfield.il.us . Email us your concerns, suggestions, or kind words and we will forward it to the proper staff member for a response. This way you will receive a targeted reply to your inquiry.

Of course, we still welcome your telephone calls at 847.317.7245 for Public Works and 847.317.2490 for Engineering.
