Village Offices will be closed on Monday, July 4th in honor of the Independence Day holiday. Offices will reopen on Tuesday, July 5th for normal business hours.

Remember, impaired driving affects everyone on the road, not just the individual who made the poor decision to get behind the wheel. For those attending Fourth of July parties, plan ahead for a safe ride home by designating a sober driver in advance or by using a ride service or public transportation.
Each Fourth of July, thousands of people, most often children and teens, are injured while using fireworks. Nationally, there are more than 18,000 fires each year caused by fireworks. In general, all fireworks should be considered dangerous, as risks include burns, eye injuries, fires, loss of appendages and even death can occur. If you intend to use permitted fireworks (sparklers, snake or glow worm pellets, smoke devices, trick noisemakers and caps), please follow the below safety tips.
