NEWS & EVENTS

The Village has the opportunity to do additional road work by joining another municipality's contract for road repaving.  This project will save the Village money by doing the work at a lower rate than it will likely cost next year.  This is the reason for the short notice.  

The following Village Roads are scheduled for paving tomorrow, November 22nd:  

Spruce Street from Susquehanna Ave to Schenck Ave

For all Village residents, please plan alternate routes through the Village.  During the milling, prepping and paving, these roads will be closed and traffic will be detoured around these areas, However, there will be access for emergency vehicles at all times.

For residents in the affected areas, there will be no parking on the street while the milling, prepping and paving is being performed.  All cars must remain off the street between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM or until the street is reopened, whichever is earlier.  For those residents in the immediate area of the paving, you may park on adjoining streets which are not on the list above, such as Susquehanna Avenue, Schenck Avenue, Prospect Street, Linen Street, and Highland Avenue.  You may have limited access to your driveway while construction work is underway.  You are welcome to request a parking permit while the road work is being performed, but it is not required. If you do want a parking permit, please make sure to have your license plate information available when you call the Village Hall.  If you have any issues, please contact the Village Hall at 482-3110 or the Department of Public Works at 504-3791.

We apologize for any inconvenience.  Thank you for your cooperation.

ATTENTION RESIDENTS:

Please be advised that there will be no sanitation service on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 24th
Recycling will be picked up on Friday, November 25th throughout the Village.
Household trash will be picked up on Friday and Saturday per the
normal schedule for your street.
