APWA is proud to announce "Stronger Together" as the theme for the 2021 National Public Works Week poster. This year's exciting poster challenges our members and their citizens to think about the role public works plays in creating a great place to live. By working together, the impact citizens and public works professionals can have on their communities is magnified and results in the ability to accomplish goals once thought unattainable.
“Who is responsible for maintenance of the cul-de-sac islands?”
Although the cul-de-sac islands are owned by the Village, the regular mowing of the center islands is the responsibility of all residents whose homes face or driveways open onto the island.

So, if your cul de sac hasn’t formalized a maintenance plan, now is the time to do so!
