North Barrington was named "Community of the Year" by the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission Nov. 8 in ceremonies held at the county's central permit facility in Libertyville. A plaque was presented to Village President Albert Pino, who recognized village staff and their consultants for the outstanding work that earned the tribute. Pino said 30 percent of North Barrington's budget goes to stormwater management. The Stormwater Management Commission staff wrote, "The village is being recognized for its ongoing efforts to reduce flooding and improve water quality in the village and the Flint Creek Watershed ... the village has made a long-term commitment to doing its part to protect Flint Creek with efforts to remove invasive species and debris jams, stream restoration and water quality."
