Christmas Tree Collection... The Village will provide various ways residents can dispose of Christmas Trees. All trees must be free of decorations and plastic wrap or tree bags. Drop-off sites will be set up at Centennial Park off Highway 161, Mel Price Park on Caseyville Avenue and Shranz Park off of Huntwood Road. These sites will be open December 26th through January 16th, 2018.

The Government Center will be closed on Monday January 15th in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Republic Service will be making trash collections as normal. There will be no shift of days for trash & recycling service.

Information about snow plowing....A reminder as to how the Village approaches snow plowing might be helpful towards understanding the process. First, snow plows move snow from the middle of the road to the sides. So by design, plows will inevitably deposit some snow at the ends of driveways and sidewalks that may have already been cleared. The reality is that you may have to shovel that area again. Consider helping neighbors who are elderly or physically unable to do so. 
If you pile snow at the end of your drive, do so on the right side as you face the street. Why? Because a snow pile on the left might get pushed across the drive as the plow moves past.
Check to ensure that your mailbox doesn't hang out into the roadway. The closer it is to the road, the more likely it could be damaged by the snow pushed aside. And if possible, don't park on any street until plowing has ended. Crews often clear drive lanes first and then return later, maybe even the next day, to "plow back" snow at the edge of the streets or around the perimeter of cul-de-sacs.  
Tornado siren testing will be done on the first Tuesday of every month at 10:00am unless there is severe weather in the area.
