Fall leaf collection will begin on November 1, 2021 and run through December 3, 2021 (weather permitting). 

Please have all of your leaves at the edge of the street at one time. If you hire a landscaper for leaf cleanup, they must remove the leaves from the Village.

Do not place the leaves on the street, or mix sticks, stones, rocks and yard waste with the leaves as someone could be injured when these items are vacuumed into the machine.

Once the Village stops picking up loose leaves in the fall, leaves must be placed in brown biodegradable bags and placed at the edge of the street for pick-up.

Andrew Kennedy, Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Notre Dame spoke to the Village Council at a recent Council meeting about developing a proposal to the National Science Foundation regarding shoreline erosion. 

He explained that they are looking at erosion along Lake Michigan.  They would like to develop better risk measures for the future to help predict what is likely to happen and what might be the effects if various mitigation options are taken. 

They need community partners and would like to meet to identify concerns, model various scenarios to see what is likely to happen in the future and produce estimates of what might happen with different scenarios. They are choosing four or five communities along the lake in Indiana and Michigan to work with on this project.

They are not asking for any funding from the Village of Grand Beach with all funding coming from the National Science Foundation.  They will need a signed collaboration letter to the National Science Foundation from the Village.
