We’re back!!! Village Hall is now open to the public!
It’s been a long couple of months but we are back here to serve the esidents of Maple Park. Village Hall is open during our regular hours, but with a few new changes due to the COVID-19.
Masks will be required to enter the building, and black X’s have been placed on the floor to assist with social distancing while you are in the building. Remember, if you are not feeling well, or have a fever please refrain from coming to village hall to conduct business. You are always welcome to utilize the drop box for any utility billing payments or your vehicle sticker purchases, and we are always available to take your calls.
Also, in order to accomodate our downtown restaurants during Phase 3 (which only allows outdoor seating), we will be temporarily closing Pleasant Street between Main Street and north of the tracks, and Kennebec Street will be closed at Kennebec & Main and Kennebec & Kennebec beginning June 3rd until September 8th.
