Help keep storm grates clear of debris

The Public Works Department needs the help of residents in keeping storm grates clear of debris in order to prevent flooding.
Storm grates are located in the curb, in front of or alongside your home. Every effort is made by Public Works personnel to keep these grates clean. However, during the spring and fall, seeds and leaves fall just as quickly as the storm grates can be cleaned. The Village is asking that you please remove debris around storm grates closest to your home to provide the best possible storm water drainage for your neighborhood. This is especially important in the event of a heavy rainfall.
