Public Works Continue Efforts

Public Works predicts water main breaks as the ground freezes and thaws in the coming days. The temperatures are expected to fluctuate from -15 °F on Wednesday to 43 °F on Sunday, with a chance of rain. Crews will continue efforts in pushing snow back to expose inlets, in anticipation for drainage from snow melt, rain, and potential water main breaks.


Anyone who experiences frozen pipes should turn the water off to their home. If you do not already know your home’s water shut off valve is located, it is recommended that you identify the valve’s location. In the event that a pipe bursts in your home and you cannot shut off the water, dial 9-1-1 and Village staff will be dispatched to shut off the water at the street connection.
