SNOW REMOVAL IN THE DOWNTOWN

With the impending snow coming overnight on Saturday, 1/31/15 and throughout the day on Sunday, 2/1/15.  The Village would ask that residents avoid parking overnight in the downtown area of Main Street in order that our snow removal company and utility workers can work to ensure the area can be accessed on Monday.  It is very hard to remove snow around parked cars and the Village doesn’t want to take a chance that your vehicle might get hit or plowed in.  Thanking you in advance for your cooperation.
