  5. Nice job by Village DPW on streets this recent storm. Ever since the Village Manager’s office received HUNDRED of complaints early on this winter that left roads icy over for days, the Manager finally realized you need to mobilize plows and salter’s early on to make the difference no matter what it might cost in dollars. Thats the way it used to be done, and one must conitinue this practice going forward for all storms. Nice to see the men out there. Great Job!!
