It's a Sign

We're talking physical, not metaphysical signs. Because of their range of benefits and potential impacts, signs are subject to a variety of local regulations. In general, and primarily in response to public safety and aesthetic concerns, the public right-of-way is reserved for governmental and traffic control signage. Should non-governmental signs be allowed in the public right-of-way? The Village Board is considering how best to regulate signs in the public right-of-way and needs your input at the Law Committee meeting on 10/09/18 at 7:00 PM.

Mow, Don't Blow!

Mowing your leaves - also known as mulch mowing - into tiny pieces on your lawn, is healthier for your lawn and soil than piling or bagging them to be removed. As the shredded leaves decompose, their nutrients enhance the soil and provide free organic mulch for your garden beds. The pollutants from leaf blowers and trucks are avoided. Homeowners around Scarsdale have been mulch mowing leaves for many years with great results. If you use a landscaper, ask them to mulch mow your leaves instead of blowing the leaves into a pile at the curb.
