This past weekend the village was hit with the first snow storm of 2012 (hopefully the last, but unlikely). While the amount of snowfall was approximately 21/2 inches a snow emergency was not declared.
However, sanding and plowing operations were required. Numerous vehicles were parked on streets throughout the village which hampered snow removal efforts. I remind all, that cars should be removed from the streets when snow falls to allow for street cleaning to be effective in creating safe driving conditions.Once a snow emergency is declared cars parked on the street are subject to a $100 summonses. Therefore in the interest of both traffic safety and financial savings of residents, remove vehicles from the Village streets whenever snow is in the forecast.
A reminder to all residents: Real Property Tax Grievance Nights have been set for Thursday, February 16 and Tuesday, February 21 between the hours of 6:30 and 9:30 p.m.
In order to provide a more efficient operation the assessor is requested that individuals filling a grievance contact village hall at 746-2193 as soon as possible to schedule an appointment with the assessor.
