Village Projects

Week of November 19th

The Village has finished waterproofing the 49 lower manholes.  Crews are still working around the Village on a few drainage projects and clearing snow accumulated next to fire hydrants.

The big trailer that has been at the wastewater plan all week is a sludge press. We are piloting a different manufacturer so that we can determine which press is best for our plant. The new press is a part of the capital improvements that were started in 2016 for the wastewater plant.

Brush Schedule

Leave collection has ended and snow plowing has begun. We will collect them as long as possible but expect to do more in the Spring.  Christmas tree collection as needed.
