The Village Board would like to remind residents of burning regulations. Please be courteous to neighbors and residents with health issues when burning. Tend your fire so that it burns quickly and doesn't smolder.
You should not burn on Village sidewalks or streets. Also be mindful of the location of your water meter cover and avoid burning on it as well as it contains sensitive electronics.
The Village has an Animal Control Ordinance, 2003-04. This Ordinance also covers nuisances, such as continuous barking. It is your responsibility to control your pet.
Please do not burn on or near Water Meter pits.
Doing so can destroy the exposed reader electronics.
