Leaf collection needs residents' cooperation
As the Village's annual leaf collection program moves into the final weeks, Public Works crews are asking residents to help ensure the pickups go well. Leaves should be raked into the street about 18 inches from the curb to give the leaf pushing equipment sufficient room to work.
