Thanks to Everyone Who Moved Their Vehicles (minus 10 vehicles) off Main Street and Monument Street for the Village Street Sweeping
~ Very Much Appreciated ~
Village Street Sweeping
Starting the week of May 22-24, the Village has contracted to have Main Street (North/South) and Monument Street (East/West) streets swept. We will have posted "NO PARKING" signs on these two streets during the hours of 8:00am - 3:00pm. Request residents relocated their vehicles on their driveways and side streets, during this period of time.
Street Sweeping provides two primary benefits to the village. The more obvious benefit is the collection and removal of paper, leaves, and other visible debris that collect in the gutters. This debris can block storm water facilities, causing localized flooding during heavy rains. An equally important, but less visible benefit is the removal of metal particles and other hazardous waste products left by passing vehicles. Although they are virtually invisible, these particles can be extremely harmful to fish and other wildlife if they reach our creeks and rivers. The Village encourages residents in the designated areas to move their parked cars off the street before the sweeping date to allow street sweeping crews room to clean streets.
