Our Town Is Your Town

Village Newsletters

The Village’s newsletter, was first published in the fall of 1999.

The newsletter has fluctuated between semi-annual to annual publishing dates.  Due to budget restraints it is currently published annually and is mailed out to property owners with their tax statements in July.  If you are not a property owner but are a resident of the Village and would like to get a copy of the newsletter mailed to you please contact the Village Clerk’s Office and we can add you to our mailing list.

Copies of the newsletters back to 2010 will be posted here.  If you are looking for a certain issue and/or article you are welcome to call the Village Clerk’s Office at (616)678-7232  or send an email and request a file search.

Spring/Summer Reminders:

What to do with yard waste is the number one question we get in the Spring and Summer. The Village will pick up some brush and grass clippings free of charge. The Yard Waste Policy is available on the website or by contacting the Village Office..

This service does not include trees that you have taken down or major trimming. The Village has a secured area where you can dump tree debris. Contact the DPW Manager at 616-293-0693 to make arrangements to drop off your debris.

Other issues: Before planting trees and bushes or installing sprinkler heads please make sure they are on your property and not in the Village right-of-way.
