Mayor Murphy in His Office

Hello everyone ... hope you're staying warm, as the snow and the cold weather continue to be present and in upcoming forecasts.  
Our DPW is doing a great job, getting to the snow and removing it from the Business District.  If there is anything we can do to help further, short of changing the weather on command, please let us know.
I know it doesn't seem like it right now, but it won't be long before the snow is all gone and we're better able to get out and about our Village and greet one another more often, face to face!
