- In the event of a storm, the Village is responsible for the clean up and removal of fallen branches and debris from trees located in Village parkways.
The removal of branches and debris which comes from private trees and vegetation is the responsibility of the property owner. The Village will not pick up private vegetation stacked in the parkway.
Residents may dispose of tree debris through the Village’s Yard Waste Collection program or a licensed tree company.
- In the event of a storm declared to be of catastrophic proportions, procedures outlined in Resolution 2004-59 will be enacted. Information regarding the disposal of storm debris under these special circumstances will be made available through the Village website, Village corner, DGTV Channel 6 and posted at Village Hall, the Library, and the train stations.
