Reminders on a snowy February 16

Both Fulton and Lucas Counties are under a Level 3 Snow Emergency. If you do not need to be on the roads, please stay home. Village of Swanton is under an Emergency Parking Ban. Police Officers will be out enforcing this. Public Service crews are beginning to head back out to resume plowing after a brief reprieve over the last couple hours. If you do have to be out on the road, please do NOT pass a snow plow. We ask for patience as our crews get out and plow roads. Primary roads are always cleared first and then secondary and alleys are tended to. Utility bills were due on February 15. However, as a result of the inclement weather and Municipal Building closure, if bills are received by 8:00 a.m. on February 18th, no late penalties will be assessed. Be safe out there Swanton!

Update on Leaf Pick Up

Lammons Bros. will be able to resume leaf pick up later this week (December 3 & 4). The final day for leaf pick up will be Monday December 7. Please place leaves on the tree lawn for collection, NOT in the street. Leaves placed in the street can be a hazard to motorist, can block drainage, and become wet and matted after a rain, which can significantly slow the collection process. Please do not mix grass, sticks, or brush in with the leaves.
