Council wants to remind all our ratepayers we have a few rules
to live by and each one helps our community grow and thrive.
Sidewalks and Boulevards
The Village Council would like to remind all residents that you are responsible for the maintenance of the boulevard/sidewalk along your property. Grass cutting, tree trimming and snow shoveling are required to keep our village tidy and accessible for everyone.
Thank you for your co-operation.
