Updates from the Village:
Snow Event Cart Placement

In the event of snow, please place your refuse and recycling carts either in your driveway apron or remove snow off of a portion of your parkway so your carts can be placed there. Please do not place your refuse and recycling carts in the street during the winter months as it can affect proper snow removal by our village snow plow crews.

News from the Health Department

Did you know? November 15, 2018 is the American Cancer Society’s 43rd annual Great American Smokeout. The Great American Smokeout encourages smokers to make a plan to quit smoking. The most recent data available indicates that in 2017, 14.0% of U.S. adults were current cigarette smokers, the lowest prevalence recorded since monitoring began in 1965.

Nonetheless, smoking remains the leading preventable cause of disease, disability, and death in the United States. Each year, an estimated 480,000 U.S. adults die from cigarette smoking and secondhand smoke exposure.

Smokers can and do quit smoking: former smokers now outnumber current smokers! Medication and counseling/coaching are the two best tools to help you quit smoking.
