The Department of Public Works began its curbside fall leaf collection this week.

Please rake leaves to the curb and leave them on the lawn area between the street and sidewalk, do not put leaves in the street or gutter as it hinders the drainage system resulting in flooding during rainfall events. As well as being against the village code 45-18. If you want to or need to bag your leaves, only put leaves in biodegradable bags. We will not pick up leaves left at the curb in plastic bags. Do not mix sticks or stones in with the leaves as they will plug and damage our equipment used to pickup your leaves.

Leaf collection will continue as needed through December 9th or until the first heavy snow.
