Village Hall Closure June 2nd and 3rd, 2022

The Village Hall administrative office will be closing early on Thursday, June 2nd at 2pm and Friday, June 3rd all day. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. This is just a temporary adjustment and we will resume our normal scheduled operating hours next week (M-F, 8AM-4PM).

There is a drop box in the front of the building (south side), to the left of the doors, that can be used for payments or paperwork. We will check the drop box as soon as possible upon reopening.

The police department will still be accessible from the rear of the building (north side).

Thank you for your understanding!
