Flower Planter Program
Due to the required Mill Street Bridge maintenance this summer, the Village cannot offer the "Friend of the Village" program in 2023. However, businesses are encouraged to consider participating in the "Mayor's Choice" program, although the program will not include a Mill Street bridge plaque this year.
We look forward to resuming the program in 2024. Reservations for the 2024 program will begin on or about April 1, 2024.
