Leaf Collection Underway
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.
