11/19/15 - The first snow of the season is almost here as a reminder to Village residents:


It shall be unlawful for any person to allow a vehicle to remain on any Village Street, Avenue, alley, cul de sac or village parking lot within the Village following a snowfall occurrence of two inches or more:

a. Whenever the Village Administrator, Village President, or Chief of Police, perceives an emergency to exist in the Village; or in any section or sections thereof, because of snow, freezing rain, sleet, ice, snowdrifts or other natural phenomena which create hazardous conditions or impede the free movement of fire, police, health, emergency or other vehicular traffic or otherwise endanger the safety and welfare of the public, the Village Administrator, Village President, or Chief of Police may declare an emergency to exist. Primary notification will be made by sending notification of Snow Emergency to the local media with a request to broadcast the emergency. 
b. Any agent or employee of the village designated to enforce the parking ordinances of the city is hereby authorized to cause any motor vehicle parked in violation of this section to be towed from any street, alley, cul-de-sac, or village parking lot. In such a case, the owner of the vehicle may be assessed the cost of towing and any storage charges in relation thereto, subject to the owner's right of appeal to the Village Administrator, Village President, or Chief of Police.

10/12/15 - At the October 7, 2015 Board of Trustees meeting, action was taken so that the Committee of the Whole meeting functions shall be combined into the regular Board meeting to permit discussion and action, as the Committee of the Whole and all other committees are hereby dissolved and the functions of these committees shall be administered by the Board, as much as they may be applicable. Also the new meeting schedule will have a start time of 6pm for the meetings held on the first and third Wednesday of the month, as noted in the Village website and posted at Village Hall. Other updates to the code incorporated the Pledge of Allegiance and time for Public presentations and/or Public comments, as part of the meeting. Any matter to be submitted to the Board shall be delivered to the Village Hall by Noon on the Friday, preceding a Board meeting. The Board also approved renumbered sections of the Ordinance regarding the Assistant Village Administrator, Local Liquor Commissioner and Legal Services
