Clean-up After Your Pets


For the safety and enjoyment of everyone, please keep your furry friend on a leash and always clean-up after them, even on your own property. Dog waste is full of more disease-causing bacteria and parasites than other types of waste and can be harmful to humans and spread disease to other dogs. Remember to carry extra waste bags with you wherever you roam with your four-legged pal. Your neighbors thank you for your consideration and for practicing good pet owner etiquette.

West Nile Precautions


Summer heat and rain brings a threat of the mosquito-borne West Nile Virus. With this in mind, public health officials are reminding residents to take precautions to avoid bites and eliminate breeding sites. Limit your time outdoors at dusk and sunrise and carefully apply insect repellent with DEET, primarily applied to clothing. Remember to clean gutters and down spouts and to store all containers upside down, cover trash cans and empty birdbaths and wading pools regularly. Village inspectors are larviciding mosquito pools that are found or reported. Backyard catch basin can be treated by calling 847-671-8245. While the risk of contracting the virus is small, please take precautions through October.
