Something to Note

If you are buying or selling a home in the Village you will need to schedule a free sewer inspection with the Village prior to closing. If there are any violations they must be addressed and corrected prior to the closing date and re-inspected.

Snow Ordinance

 It is the responsibility of each property owner to clear all snow and ice from the sidewalk adjoining your property. State law and local ordinance mandate that snow is not to be shoveled or plowed into or across the roadway. All Business’ are asked to pile snow along the curb but not in the street or around the trees.


Please be a good neighbor and clear your sidewalks shortly after the snow/ice storm has passed. Or by 10:00 a.m. the following morning.


In the event of a snow storm, our DPW will clear all major streets first, secondary streets and alleys will follow. They  work long hours to keep our streets clear of snow and ice. Your patience and consideration is greatly appreciated during this time of year.
