The weekly collection of green bins in the Village of Chester will begin the week of June 7/16
and end the week of September 13/16
REMINDER The week of September 13/16 is the last of the weekly green bin pick up for this year.
At the close of Nomination Day (May 18/16 @ 5:00pm) two candidates had been officially nominated. We will be welcoming back Michael Heisler for his third term on the Commission and Tom Mulrooney for his second term. Sadly, we will be saying “so long” (and thank you) to Bill Nauss.
Because there were two vacancies and two candidates, there will be no need to hold an election, both having won by acclamation.

That meeting will be held on June 1, 2016 at 7:00 pm at the Village office (27 Pleasant St) This is a meeting open to the public and when the Commissioners will be electing the Chair and Vice Chair.
