Announcements and Events

Please Note:  All solicitors must register with the Village Office. EACH solicitor receives their own card.  If they do not have a Peddler’s Card from the Village, they are NOT registered.  The card will have a Village Signature and the Village Seal imprinted on the card.

Village Residents have been having trouble with solicitors being rude, appearing after dark, and being disrespectful.

If you have any problems, call the Village office if is during the work day (469-7371) or if after work hours call the non-emergency number for the County (333-8911).
