In light of the anticipated winter weather event, we wanted to remind everyone that there should be no parking on or along any Village street during snowfalls of two inches or more until snow removal is complete. Violators will be ticketed and/ or towed. With your cooperation this will help them in getting the roads cleared as quickly as possible. Thank you!

Water Main Break

Today there was a water main break in town affecting parts of South Street, Willow Street, and possibly Mulberry Street. They are close to getting it clamped and when they do they will clean and test the repair to ensure the repairs are sufficient. There won’t be a need to have a boil order issued but when the water is turned back on you should just need to run the water in your home for a few minutes to clear the lines. If you have any questions at all you are more than welcome to call village hall at 815-827-3309.
