You may have noticed the streetlights throughout the Village are a little brighter these days and this is because we have upgraded them to LEDs. This has been in the works for a few years and seeing it come to fruition is a great accomplishment. Aside from being brighter, these new lights are substantially more energy efficient and will pay for themselves in a few years with long term energy cost savings to you the taxpayer.
Just a reminder that in a few weeks we are going to be able to hold the elections that were postponed last March. The positions that are up for election are Mayor and two Trustees. On Tues., Sept. 15 from 12 noon to 9 p.m. voting will be held at the Florida Senior Center, located behind Village Hall on 33 South Main St. Social distancing rules will be enforced and regular sanitizing procedures will be utilized during the voting hours.
If you do not want to vote in person you can vote by absentee ballot. Paperwork for the absentee ballots can be picked up any time at the front desk of Village Hall. Simply fill out the form, complete your ballot, place it in the envelope, and you’re done. Absentee ballots will be collected starting now until 5 p.m. on Sept. 15. If you already completed one before the March election date it will be included.
