Last Chance! Green Bay Trail User Survey Closes Tonight
If you couldn't make it to the Green Bay Trail Open House and you have 15 minutes to spare, please take a survey about the Green Bay Trail. Responses will be used to help further direct the work of The Lakota Group as they formulate a plan for the Trail's long-term development and use.
Leaf Collection Continues
The last day to place leaves on your parkway for collection is by 7 AM on Monday, November 28. Leaves placed on the parkway after 7 AM on November 28 may not be collected.

Please do not rake leaves into the street, as leaves clog storm sewers, leading to flooded streets and yards. If you hire a service to handle your leaves, please inform them of this request. Also, please do not park in front of leaf piles, when possible, to enable the Village to easily access them.
