    • LLPD and the Public Works Department have partnered together to purchase 4 digital speed monitoring signs that will be posted throughout the Village.

    • Registration is now closed for the first session of Summer Recreation as we are at capacity (300 kids). We are still taking registration for the 2nd session, but there are only a limited number of spaces.
    • Recycling revenue for May 2017 totaled $6,582.00.
    • For the past several months Village staff have been working on requesting a reduction of our Bio-Monitoring (WET) testing from EPA. Earlier this week we were notified that our request was approved. This reduction will save the Wastewater Treatment Plant Division about $4,000.00 annually between testing and shipping fees.
