In addition to batteries, residents can also dispose of old cell phones, at ink cartridges at Village Hall.  Stop in at Village Hall Monday - Friday, from 8 am - 4:30 pm to safely dispose of your items.

Sanitary Sewer Update
Recently, the Village Board adopted a sanitary sewer backup no-fault insurance.  This program provides additional relief to property owners should a sanitary sewer backup cause damage in a private home, regardless of why the event occurred.  The policy is used to cover damages in excess of the private property owner's insurance.  All residents are encouraged to have sewer backup insurance, especially if they have a finished basement area.  The program helps offer additional relief of up to $100,000 per event.  Some useful information for homeowners can be found on the R&R Insurance website.  If you would like more information on this program, please contact Alex Henderson.
