them repaired and painted. Maintain your lawns,
gardens and yards for beauty and cleanliness.

from wire fences, bushes and hedges. Put out
trash at curb., for'Wednesday pick-up each week

Barking Dogs APRIL 1973
Dogs are said to be a man's best friend. How-ever,
when they bark and howl excessively and
cause a disturbance, they can hardly be con-sidered
such by your neighbors. Dogs should
not be left alone outside, either during the
day or at night, or left alone at home for
several hours at a time. For the best inter-est
of yourself and your neighbors, please
abide by the Village Ordinance regarding dis-turbances
No person owning or possessing any animal shall
allow it to disturb the comfort, peace or re-pose
of any persons in the vicinity by long
continued or frequent noise. If a complaint
is made to the Village Clerk that such noise
has occurred, the owner, keeper or possessor
of the offending animal shall be notified of
the provisions of this section, and that its
violation is charged.
Work For Clean Water
The Freeport Waterfront is one of our most val-uable
assets, and every Freeport resident and
businessman should work towards keeping our
waterways clean. Report to the Freeport Police,
FR 8-0700, any observation of anyone dumping
garbage or refuse into the waterways. The Po-lice
Boat will be on regular patrol to appre-hend
violators of the Village Ordinance which
Don't Place Leaves At TheCurb
During the autumn of each year the Highway De-partment
will pick up leaves that are neatly
piled at the curb, using the special vacuum
trucks and other equipment. However, this ser-vice
is limited to about eight weeks when fall-ing
leaves present the biggest problem. That
is also the time of the year when the Highway
Department personnel can most readily be spared
from their regular work of street and parking
Some residents have continued to put leaves,
grass clippings and other material at the curb.
These items should instead be placed in con-tainers
for the regular Wednesday trash pick-up
by the Sanitation Department.
No person shall discharge a toilet or deposit
or cause the deposit of any sewage, offal, ashes."
