Sleepy Hollow is a village in Kane County, Illinois, United States 30 miles northwest of Chicago. The population was 3,553 at the 2000 census. Various streets in the village are named after characters in Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Other streets are named after trees. Still other streets, particularly in the subdivision of Saddle Club Estates, are named after horse racing tracks. These street names include Saratoga, Churchill, Arlington and Belmont. Carol Crest is named after a resident on that street. The family was asked what they wanted the name of their street. The husband suggested Carol for his wife, hence Carol Crest.

Sleepy Hollow - Financial troubles - Netflix

In recent months, Sleepy Hollow has many financial hardships. All the money in reserves and contingency funds has been used up. Street lights are not being replaced, mowing of parks has stopped, and outside contracting has been limited as much as possible. In March 2016, Sleepy Hollow has been left with three viable options. The first option is being annexed to a neighboring municipality. The second being unification with another town to form a separate entity. The final option being dissolving the government altogether, to become an unincorporated part of Kane County. All of these options would result in the loss of the “Sleepy Hollow Concept of Good Living”. To keep Sleepy Hollow afloat, and keep it as its own village, officials are asking for a property tax hike. At the Village Board meeting on March 7, 2016 the motion was passed to allow sheds and certain fences with restrictions. (Sheds and fences have been against village code for numerous years). By allowing sheds and fences, the village will be able to generate revenue through permit costs. As of late 2016, Sleepy Hollow has created a plan, allowing them to maintain financial control without the options from March. Street lights have been replaced with new energy efficient models. A car dealership and gaming cafe are set to open in 2017 on Route 72.
