Village Projects

Week of November 19th

The wastewater main repairs are now complete.  The 49 lower manholes are also waterproofed.  The 3 lower lift stations still need to be sealed in order to complete our flood remediation work to the wastewater system.  The Village is working with engineers to make that happen.

Highway Department continues snow removal as needed.
Brush Schedule

Leaf collection was very short-lived due to the weather.   The highway guys did come around this week and pick up what piles they could identify.  We hope to be able to repeat that next week when the snow may be clear.  Whatever leaves we do not get this fall we will get in the spring.  Brush collection is over until April.
 Christmas tree collection as needed.
