NEED HELP AROUND THE HOUSE? – The village has a list of people willing to do odd jobs for a nominal fee, like raking leaves, shoveling snow, minor repairs, etc. If you would like a copy, just stop by the office and we'd be happy to give it to you.

SIDEWALK CLEANING – The owner or occupant of any premises abutting a sidewalk shall clear away all snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction from sidewalks situated on land adjoining the property owned or occupied by them within FORTY-EIGHT (48) HOURS after the time such snow, ice, dirt or other obstruction was deposited or formed on the sidewalk.

WINTER GUIDELINES – Now that the snow has arrived we ask that the residents of the village take some proactive steps to help our Public Works department clear the snow more efficiently.
• Whenever possible, park your vehicles off the roadway to allow for the plows to clear as much snow as possible, especially in the cul-de-sacs as vehicles make it difficult to maneuver snow removal equipment
• Ensure that no vehicles are left on the street for more than 72 hours, as they could be towed, and it impedes the snow removal process
• Try to shovel as much snow from your sidewalk onto your lawn as possible.
