We are not mailing the 2020 Fall Newsletter this time, but you can follow the enclosed link to it. It is also posted on our website under "The Village" at the top and then under "Newsletters." Copies are available at the Village Hall and at the Post Office (I will try keep up with adding copies as needed). Thank you and Happy Autumn!!!
Halloween Trick-or-Treating hours in the village will be on October 31st from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Those residents wishing to participate should please turn their porch lights on during these hours (yes, even with daylight) so parents and trick-or-treaters know which houses will be participating. Those wishing to take children around in tractors or golf carts cross Rt. 47/Main Street ONLY at McKinley where a police officer will be stationed. We ask everyone to be safe and wear your masks please! Please be safe and have a spooky good time!!!
*** UPDATE as of 2:34 pm ***
*** BOIL ORDER *** from 9913 Illinois Street south to Harrison will be under a boil order. This boil order includes Hazel's on Main Street due to the fact they are connected to the Illinois Street main. We have a temporary fix to the water main leak and will be addressing the issue again tomorrow, beginning at approximately 8:00 am when the water will be shut off for complete repairs.
