A reminder regarding parking on Village streets during snow events:   As the winter weather continues, please be cognizant of road conditions during any snow event.  If you notice snow accumulating on the roads, keep in mind that our service department will likely be salting and plowing.  Please keep all vehicles off the roadways to allow our salt trucks to navigate streets and cul-de-sacs. Effective immediately, violators will be issued a warning on a first offense and may be cited on subsequent offenses.  Thank you for your cooperation.
