Boating Reminder

Over the past two weeks, we have been visited by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR). Who have been checking for required equipment, registrations, over-loaded boats, and for people boating under the influence.

The information provided in our 'Boating Checklist' was obtained from the Handbook of Illinois Boating Laws and Responsibilities.To read the Handbook in its entirety,
please click here.

To view the 'Boating Checklist', please click the poster for a larger viewing .
Solid Waste & Recycling Center
The Solid Waste & Recycling Center has implemented several guidelines which should start looking familiar from previous Seed's.

Only two cars at a time will be allowed to dump their garbage. Vehicles will be required to stop behind a new stop sign and wait until a vehicle leaves the dumping area. They can then proceed and remove their garbage. We hope that this eliminates the issues we have had with social distancing
at the recycling center.

Mondays/Wednesdays/Fridays | 7:30 am to 9:30 am
Tuesdays/Thursdays | 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Saturdays | 10:00 am to 2:00 pm
Sundays | 10:00 am to 7:00 pm

Important Update:
2020 Census Operational Adjustments Due to COVID-19.
