Leaf Collection Update

The Streets Department is steadily collecting leaves throughout the village on their second round.  This collection has moved more slowly due to large volume; many people got out in the nice weather to rake this past weekend.  If you are on a street that is colored in green, the second round has passed your address.  A third round of collection will start in the south part of the village when this round is complete.  Leaf 10-29-14

If you would like your leaves collected, get them to the tree lawn by Nov. 23rd.  The final collection will be completed by that time.
