The Mayor Mayor Terry Lumpkins My name is Terry Lumpkins and I have been a resident of Round Lake Heights for over 35 years. I have been the mayor since 1993. My wife Wanda and I have been married for 32 years and have 2 children, my son Jasen is 31 and my daughter Michelle is 18. I have worked in Round Lake Heights since I was 19 years old, helping my family operate a local restaurant. In the early 90's I broke away from the family business to eventually become the General Manager of a car dealership. I am the President of Dollars for Scholars, which was started in 2000. Round Lake Heights was the first town in Lake County to join this program. To date we have raised more than $115,050.00 and given away 182 scholarships to our residents to further their education. I was a member of JAWA (Joint Action Water Agency) for 10 years. I am currently the Director for Cen-Com, which is the police and fire dispatch center for the Round Lake Area. I have served on many other local boards, including one of the directors of Rondaradio. I involve myself in the community whenever possible. Since taking office in 1993, we have seen many changes in our village. One of my biggest accomplishments was the establishing of our right to buy and sell water to our area residents. This would not have taken place without the addition of two new subdivisions, Fox Glen and Chesapeake Trails. Because of the two new subdivisions our population has doubled. We also built a new Village Hall in 2001, replacing the one from the early 60's. Another accomplishment that I am very proud of is the joint effort with the Round Lake Area Park District to increase the number of recreational parks from 1 in 1993 to 7 in 2015. Another tough task was balancing the budget, which we did on a yearly basis, and the end result is a very healthy and prospering village. To this date we are one of the only Village registered in the state of Illinois to have very little debt. Everything the Village owns is paid for in full or we owe very little on. The Village Clerk Erica Carrillo My name is Erica Carrillo and I have been a life -long resident of Round Lake Heights. I love my community and have had the benefit to finish my degree with the assistance of Dollars for Scholars. I have also had the opportunity to volunteer at several events in the community such as the Annual Festival and Breakfast with the Easter Bunny. I work in the area in the banking industry. I have seen many positives in RLH over the years and as new member of the Board I look forward in working with the rest of the Board. Trustees Trustee Marva Meeks Director to C.L.C.J.A.W.A. for Round Lake Consortium, Alternate to J.E.T.S. Board, Alternate to S.A.W.A. and Vice President for Dollars for Scholars. I have resided with my family in Round Lake Heights for 38 years. I became involved in our local government 17 years ago because I believed I could help make a difference. My life and our village has seen many changes during my 4 ½ terms in office. Personally, the marriage of my children and the birth of my seven grandchildren. Governmentally, a village that went from operating in the red with minimal police coverage to a village that operates in the black and full time police coverage. The department has 5 full time officers. With new development, new parks, and the addition of the middle school. Round Lake Heights has grown two fold. When I was elected to my first term the party slogan was "Party for the People". I believe I have upheld that motto and will continue to do so, both as Trustee as well as in my personal life. Trustee Dominick Mahoney Hi - My wife Susan and I have lived in the Round Lake Area with our children Zach and Melissa since 1992, and moved to the "Heights" in 2002. Since first moving into the area our family has enjoyed and remain dedicated members of St. Joseph Church in Round Lake. Susan served as our Village Clerk for 5 years and I served on our Zoning Board before becoming a Trustee. I currently preside on the Board of Directors for our community radio station WRLR 98.3 fm. I have had the privilege to work side by side with my Mom and Pop for over 25 years in our family business Ultra Printing.
