Closing Waterstone Rd. During Arrival and Dismissal of Students
After careful consideration of the safety of elementary school children and parents who are not provided busing services through the school district, the Village Board will be restricting Waterstone Road travel between the hours of 8:30a.m. -9:00a.m and 3:00p.m. – 3:30p.m to staff and residents of that street. Over the past few months, we have received far too many complaints of speeding, unsafe backing up, driving on the sidewalk as well as complaints of driving the wrong way down the one way street. Therefore, we will not continue with what has gone on. The “kiss & go” is available on Vine St. for parents during arrival. For dismissal, we encourage parents to park on Windermere Ave or Helen Kelly field. Although the Village does not provide a crossing guard at the less traveled intersection of Elm and Vine (Helen Kelly), we do provide a crossing guard at Waterstone Road and Windermere Ave. We understand that this poses an inconvenience for many of you; however, the safety of those who are forced to walk is of the utmost paramount concern. We will continue looking for solutions to this inconvenience.
Christmas Tree Pickup
The Village will be picking up Christmas Trees every Monday and Thursday in the month of January. All trees will be donated to the Breezy’s Winter Carnival for their annual bonfire on the ice.
