Letter From the President
You may have noticed a few major projects that have been completed recently. On Hickory Drive, an unsafe and unsightly house has finally been torn down and hauled away. The Village has been in court with the property owner to repair or demolish the house for 5 years. When the homeowner made no effort at correcting the blight, the court ordered it demolished. There have already been several inquiries about the property, so we may see a new home on that location before long. The Village is going to continue to pursue homeowners to bring their property into compliance. If you have a complaint with a property that may need to be addressed, please bring it to the Village office attention and we will check it out. You can of course remain anonymous.
The other project near completion is phase 4A of the storm water drainage project. Reseeding the new park on West Parkview will happen this week, and this space will be a great asset to the residents on that side of town. Overall, Paulsen Paving did an awesome job on the entire project. They have asked that we relay to residents that the straw blanket they put down while grass is growing is biodegradable and is designed to decompose over time and does not need to be pulled up. In fact, pulling it up may even hurt the new grass. The next phase of the storm water project should be going out for bid in the months to come.
Have a great rest of summer!

Lawn/Yard Watering - New Ordinance
The Village has adopted a year round watering ordinance. This is a very important tool needed now so we can insure that our children, and grandchildren, will have the water they need later on. Many communities have adopted similar ordinances with strict policies. Our ordinance is rather simple in that it works on an odd-even basis. If your address ends with an even number, watering is allowed on even number calendar days and the same works for odd number addresses with odd number calendar days. There are a few exceptions. If you have questions on the exceptions, call the Village office and they will be happy to help.
Please remember that permits are required for garage sales. Stop by the Village Hall or visit us online at VOML.org to fill out an application. There is no charge, and each resident is allowed to host 2 garage sales per year.
Since the Village garbage pick up is on Wednesday morning, we ask that garbage cans not be put out before Tuesday AND pulled off the street by Wednesday night. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated as we work to keep our streets safe and clean.
Please note that 20 mph is the speed limit on all village streets. Due to many recent complaints, the McCullom Lake police will be strictly enforcing this law for the safety of our residents.
