HEAVIER PLASTIC BAGS AVAILABLE AT VILLAGE HALL
50,000 plastic bags have been ordered for the
residents of Freeport. 10,000 are on hand and
the additional 't0,000 will be on hand shortly,
the latter being imprinted with the words HELP
KEEP FREEPORT CLEAN.
These plastic bags are available at Village
Hall for use in disposing of grass clippings,
tree and bush prunings, and other burnable
trash. They may be purchased 8:30 AM to *»:30
PM Monday through Friday in units of 10 bags.
These new bags are made of much heavier plastic
than those of last year. They are the large
double garbage-can size and the cost to Free-port
residents is ten cents a bag.
These bags should be put out Tuesday night for
regular Wednesday trash pick-up by the Sanita-tion
Trucks (except during holiday weeks).
These bags offer many advantages to both the
homeowner and to the Sanitation Department,
They are inexpensive and eliminate the need
for cartons and bushel baskets.
They are light to carry and save the citizen
the chore of returning empty containers froa
the curb to the house.
They ere neat and can be easily tied with the
twist binder supplied so nothing can spill out
and litter the streets.
Animals are not attracted to properly closed
bags as the polythylene plastic, bars odor trans-fer.
The bags are waterproof so cuttings do not get
wet and rain-soaked.
They help to expedite trash collection and keep
FREEPORT an attractive community.

TO BILL ELECTRICITY MONTHLY
Some years ago it was decided to bill electric
charges for residential accounts once every two
months as an econoay measure and because of the
limitations of the village's data processing
equipment. However, it has been found that the
extended time between bills causes serious
budgeting problems for sone residents and
collection difficulties for the Electric Depart-ment.
Therefore all residential and commercial
customers will now be billed once a month for
electricity used. The latest data processing
machines will make it possible to maintain
complete records and provide efficient service.
Mrs. Rose Carvell has been appointed Adminis-trative
Assistant to Urban Renewal Director
John Salvadore. She also serves as Secretary to
the Citizens Committee on Community Planning,
which is made up of all organizations interested
in Freeport urban renewal and related matters.
YOUR DOG MUST BE LICENSED
Your attention is called to the fact that state
law requires all dogs in the Village to be li-censed.
It also provides that neglect of this
obligation subjects the owner to a penalty of
510 plus costs. Any loose dog picked up by the
Dog Warden generally cannot be identified to
be reclaimed unless it is licensed and wearing
a tag. The licensing fees are 82.25 for each
nale or spayed female dog, and 85.25 for each
unspayed female dog. If you have overlooke li-censing
please attend to it now by seeing the
Registrar at Village Hall.
