At Herscher’s village board meeting on Monday evening, the board discussed the issue of some residents not receiving garbage pick up, especially in alleys. The issue can be resolved by calling the village hall at 815-426-2131. Residents should call as soon as they realize their garbage hasn’t been picked up. 

Also, the WWTP Package Plant upgrades need additional work of filling holes in the floor, so a change order was approved, which should be covered by insurance. 

Bob Voss noted that several sidewalks on the west side of town are in need of repair and suggests that a replacement program should be planned.

In addition, three Planning and Zoning Board recommendations were approved by the board.

Trick or Treating hours have been set in Herscher for 4 - 6:30 PM on Sunday, October 31.
