Utility Bills Arriving Late – The United States Postal Service continues to have the following alert on its webpage, “USPS is experiencing unprecedented volume increases and limited employee availability due to the impacts of COVID-19 We appreciate your patience.”  The Village has noticed that the increased volume is likely causing utility payments to arrive late. The Village asks that customers keep this in mind as you mail payments and to consider alternative payment options to avoid late fees.  More information can be found on the Utilities webpage HERE.

Road Work – The Village has contracted with a paving company to resurface several Village roads. The Village is meeting with the contractor early next week and is expected to receive a preliminary schedule for the work which is expected to begin soon. Updates from the Village regarding road closings and detours will be sent to Village’s Voice subscribers and posted on social media.
