I would like to congratulate the organizers of last weekend’s successful events and commend them on a job well done. The Chamber coordinated trick-or-treating down Windermere Ave. that drew over 400 kids and their parents to our downtown to enjoy a beautiful day of trick-or-treating with our businesses. The Fire Department led the kids in a wonderful parade down Windermere Ave., and the evening was capped off by a tremendous haunted trails event, coordinated by the G.L. Boy Scouts of Troop 121. Great job by all and thank you to everyone involved.
This year, the Village will once again impose a curfew on Mon., Oct. 30 and Tues., Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. If you are under 18 years of age, you must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to be out later than 8 p.m. on those nights.
The Village is still accepting comments on handling the situation of short-term residential rentals. If you would like to include your input toward the Board’s decision, please email me at Mayor@villageofgreenwoodlake.org. We anticipate a public hearing to be held on the issue for our December Board meeting.
