Mayor Don A. De Graff
Village President Don A. De Graff was presented The Patricia Chase Magon Municipal Leader of the Year award in recognition of his “dedicated service, vision, and outstanding contributions as a municipal leader” on behalf of our community, the Chicago Southland Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the hospitality industry in the Chicago Southland region.
It is our intention to make your experience in South Holland secure, convenient and rewarding.
Our Village was founded by early Dutch settlers in 1847. Our rich history has included a heritage of faith in God with an important emphasis on unity in the family. This heritage has outlined and defined who we are as a community. As we have grown into a diverse community we have retained and nurtured this traditional value system, which continues to provide a strong foundation for us as a Village.
Our mission as a Board and Administration is to create an atmosphere where each resident feels the acceptance of their neighbor and community. We desire to increase communication and to build strong new relationships with each other. We want to progressively move toward the goal of becoming a "Model Community" that will set the standard to which all cities, towns and villages will aspire. We will work side by side with our churches, businesses, schools, service organizations and residential leadership to accomplish this goal.
I am confident that you will find our Village to be a great place to live, work, and raise a family. If I, the Village Board or Administration can be of any assistance to you, please let us know.
