Downed tree limbs were one of the main reasons we lost power throughout the Village this year. As a result, the Village is working to change the requirements regarding how homeowners maintain trees on their properties. The Council approved the changes during a first reading at their last meeting.
The second reading will be at the November meeting. The idea is to encourage residents to keep trees on their properties trimmed so that heavy winds won't knock so many limbs into power lines. If passed on second reading we will be providing more information on the changes in the next newsletter.
