Have you noticed the 3-way Stop at Condit and Austin?

In an effort to help slow traffic traveling down Austin Street, the Village has added a three-way stop at the intersection of Austin and Condit Streets.  REMINDER: There is no parking allowed within 20 feet of a crosswalk at an intersection, nor within 30 feet of a stop sign.  Thanks for doing your part to help keep Tolono’s streets safe.

Brush Pickups are now twice a month

It’s springtime and that means a lot of folks will be cleaning up their neighborhood.  To assist with those efforts, we will increase brush pickup times to twice a month.  Pickup days are the first and third Monday.  If the second pickup day of the month falls on meter reading day, the brush will be picked up the following day.

Please remember that brush can only be picked up from the curbside. For safety reasons, we can not pick up brush in alleys.
