Mayor’s Corner

Summer is here!!  I wish everyone safe and fun travels.

In my travels around the village I have noticed a lot of people walking. This is great fun and exercise. I have also noticed many people walking with the flow of traffic. Please make sure you are facing traffic when walking. It is the safest way to walk.
