Brush pickup is available to residents at no cost once a month (April through October) the last Wednesday of the month. Brush pickup includes small bush and tree trimmings or debris from storm damage. No pick up will be made for large tree removal. Please bundle and stack the brush neatly on the parkway.
The Public Works Department does tree trimming on parkway trees at various times of the year.
The Public Works Department provides parkway tree plantings. New construction ordinances require parkway trees be provided by the Builder or Developer in commercial, industrial and residential projects. Please contact the Village for species and size requirements.
Snow removal is provided by the Public Works Department on all Village owned streets and alleys. When a snow storm is forecasted, park cars in driveways and off of public streets so the Village snowplows can clean the streets curb to curb.
