RESPONSE FROM THE VILLAGE:
Update to Village's Leaf Blower Emergency Order--On April 7th, the Village Manager, at the direction of the Village Board of Trustees, issued an emergency order to ban the use of leaf blowers of any kind within the boundaries of the Village. Due to yesterday's storm, the emergency order has been updated to allow the use of leaf blowers between the hours of 11 AM and 6 PM beginning today, April 14, 2020, through Sunday, April 19, 2020. Thank you for your cooperation and be safe.
