We would like to thank everyone for practicing Social Distancing! We have seen lots of people out walking, riding bikes, and visiting with their neighbors from across the street this weekend. Good Job. We are all in this together!
Some fun ideas have been popping up to entertain the kids while still being apart. Putting hearts in the windows (Heart Hunters on Facebook) or even Easter eggs for the kids to look for as they walk/drive by. If you have an elderly or home-bound neighbor, a green piece of paper if they are okay, yellow if they need something, and red if it is an emergency would be an idea.
We continue to provide services around the Village. The Office and Municipal building remain closed to the public to protect our essential staff. The office staff is here for limited hours to keep business running. Street Water and Sewer Departments remain fully staffed at this time.
