City Hall will be closed Monday, October 9th, in observance of Columbus Day. We wish you a safe and happy weekend. Take a moment during the week-end and share your own family’s “Columbus Day” story with younger family members; when your immigrant ancestors discovered America.

Republic Garbage Services will run a day late for the first full week of the month. Please put your totes out the evening before pick-up and remove them from the street-side as soon as possible following pick-up. The new truck with an automatic arm is in use-the tote lid may or may not be left up after collection. Please ensure that multiple totes are a minimum of three feet apart and at least three feet away from parked cars, etc. Please ensure that totes are placed with the hinged side away from the street. All house-hold waste should be bagged and inside the tote. Republic is not required to accept additional bags of trash at curb-side. Totes not in compliance will not be emptied. To rent an additional residential tote, contact Lisa @ 918-693-3164. For new commercial service contact Josh @ 618-751-4914.

City-Wide Fall Clean-Up is set for October 2-5 from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Please, no after-hours dumping! You may bring your rubbish to the light plant at 312 West market Street. Do not bring tires, electronics, cans of wet paint, chemicals, or batteries.

Trick or Treat! The hours for Trick or Treat have been set for 5:00- 8:00 pm on Tuesday, October 31. if you are participating in the event, please leave your porch light on during those hours as a signal to young folks that they are welcome.

Leaf burning is allowed as long as the leaves are not burned on City Streets or the fires left unattended. Burning on streets damages the black top/oil & chip surfaces and generates additional chemicals into the air we breathe. Please be conscientious of neighbors and consider composting leaves as the better alternative. If you choose to bag, please consider paper yard-waste bags instead of plastic.
