Clippings are never eligible for curbside pick up.

CLEAN UP AFTER DOGS!

Pet owners must clean up after their dogs!

Animal waste is a health hazard and unwelcome upon our sidewalks.  In an effort to assist residents, the Village has installed two dog waster stations; one at the Thorne Building and one on Merritt Avenue across from the Village Hall.  Stations are also located in the park.  We hope you take full advantage of these facilities.


PROJECT UPDATES:

Our studies have determined that the most common and easily corrected source of clean water (I & I) making its way to our sanitary system is homeowner's use of sump pumps. Pumping basements to the wastewater treatment plant puts an undue stress on our operation. This practice is prohibited under our code. Village officials will be conducting inspections so please remove any sumps from the sanitary system.
