Streets

Repairs and maintains the Village’s street network including street sweeping, snow plowing, and ice control, as well as resurfacing and patching of streets and sidewalks. 

Leaf Sweeping
During the season, the Village's four street sweepers sweep 19 zones, and residents can expect their neighborhoods to be swept 3-4 times during the Fall.

Street sweepers collect leaves that naturally fall into the streets. Raking or blowing leaves into the street from a resident’s private property or the village’s parkway violates the Village ordinance. It’s important that residents with landscapers remind crews that they cannot place leaves into the street. Residents are responsible for the work their landscaper does. If a landscaper blows leaves into the street, it is the resident’s responsibility to remove the leaves.

If street sweeper crews reasonably identify leaves as having been intentionally placed in the street, they are instructed to go around those piles of leaves. Notices may be delivered to residents asking them to remove leaves they may have placed into the street. Raking or blowing leaves into the street creates a hazard for the entire neighborhood. Leaves can possibly clog street drains during a rain storm and a leaf-covered street can create a slippery road surface.
