As a result of the severe weather earlier this evening, crews are working to address a number of power outages and downed tree limbs throughout the Village.
Public Works crews have been deployed to remove limbs from the streets and sidewalks. In order to give residents time to collect any limbs on their property, a special brush pick up will be held starting Monday, August 17. For more information regarding brush pickup guidelines, please visit the Village website.
