Village officials will help remove pile of trash at Flossmoor residence

Five Flossmoor village board members are volunteering to help remove a big pile of residential trash this weekend.

At Monday’s board meeting Mayor Paul Braun asked for volunteers to help with the planned Saturday morning clean-up of the trash, located next to a house on Avers Avenue. Four village trustees ― James Wilder, James Mitros, Perry Hoag and Philip Minga ― agreed to help get rid of the garbage.

“It should only take about a half hour,” Braun said, adding that Homewood Disposal has agreed to donate a dumpster for the clean-up effort . . .
