Announcements and Events
Please Note: All solicitors must register with the Village Office. EACH solicitor receives their own card. If they do not have a Peddler’s Card from the Village, they are NOT registered. The card will have a Village Signature and the Village Seal imprinted on the card.
Village Residents have been having trouble with solicitors being rude, appearing after dark, and being disrespectful.
If you have any problems, call the Village office if is during the work day (469-7371) or if after work hours call the non-emergency number for the County (333-8911).
Thank You SJO High School Soccer!
This was a community project done by the High School Soccer Team to help teach the importance of community and sharing in making it a better place for all. They painted picnic tables, playground equipment, cleaned up the park area, painted the Basketball court, etc.
