To the editor:
Beech Grove would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving.
City Hall will be closed Thursday and Friday, and trash pickup will be a day late on those days (no collection over the weekend).
The Friday after Thanksgiving traditionally starts the holiday season shopping. We encourage you to shop local and visit our Main Street businesses for good deals.
Our Department of Public Works is prepared to take on winter weather. We have purchased six new snowplows and pickup trucks. Our salt spreaders are being installed, and we have a barn full of salt.
Local contractors for snow removal in neighborhoods are secured again for this season, and we will plow all local streets when 2 or more inches of snow falls.
Dennis B. Buckley
Mayor of Beech Grove
