Village Hall - Counters Closed
Due to the dramatically increasing positivity rates, and high transmissibility of the Omicron variant, the Village Hall lobby will be CLOSED to walk-in traffic for the next few weeks.
To continue providing services, the vestibule doors of Village Hall will remain open 24/7. A small table with IN/OUT baskets has been placed there for you to drop off items for us. While we may only have one person in Village Hall during the day, we will be answering phones, checking voicemail, and regularly checking the vestibule for your business items. Access to the police help kiosk will remain available outside of normal business hours, 5:00pm to 8:00am, for night and weekend assistance as needed.
We hope this will only need to continue for a few weeks. The Village encourages you to get vaccinated, wear your mask, and wash your hands. We will ask you to please take care of yourself, your family, and your neighbors. We have a great community and caring for one another is part of what makes us special.
Christmas Tree Collection
Flood Brothers offer Christmas tree collection during the first three weeks of January, limit one per household. Any additional holiday trees will require a yard waste sticker.
Friendly reminder that trees must be placed at the curb, and be rid of any ornaments, decorations, or non-biodegradable materials. Collections will take place on your regularly scheduled pick-up day.

Water Tank Recoat - November 5th Update
The tank has been refilled, and restoration of the park has begun as the water tower project nears completion. A reminder to please stay off the open area as we attempt to grow new grass. A big thank you to the adjacent neighbors who have been accommodating throughout this project. An important piece of our water network has now been revitalized!
What's next? We are currently working with AT&T and T-Mobile on a timeline that would detail the return of equipment back to the water tank and removal of the temporary monopole.
Temporary Cell Tower
The temporary tower on Roger and Green Bay is now fully operational. If you are experiencing any disruptions in your service, please contact your provider to alert them to the issue.
Once the water tower rehabilitation is complete, the antennas will return to the water tower. With the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint, we now have the opportunity to allow Verizon to operate in the Village. If the negotiations are successful, those with Verizon service should see a dramatic improvement in signal strength later this year.
