The Water Department will be doing a full system flush the last week of September. Do not use hot water as hydrants are flushed in your area.  To help clean out your personal service lines, run your cold water for approximately 10 to 15 minutes until the water is cleared up.  This will help remove the iron that has accumulated between your personal curb stop and the faucets in your home.  Thank you for your patience during this time and any inconvenience this may cause.

The Street Superintendent would like to remind village residents that leaves and loose yard waste needs to be bagged.
