ARLINGTON — Arlington Council discussed a variety of upcoming village tasks on Monday.
American Electric Power workers will be trimming tree limbs in the village during the next few weeks to keep branches away from wires.
Orange AEP trucks will descend on the village while the work is undertaken.
Also, fire hydrants will be flushed throughout the village starting next Monday and possibly Tuesday, depending on weather.
Village officials also noted that hydrants in Arlington are in dire need of paint.
“They are looking pretty bad,” Fire Chief Al Latta said.
Separately, the village-sponsored junk collection for residents will be held from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 12 at the village park.
Trash bins will be available at the park. Items that will not be accepted include household trash, oils and cement.
The Arlington High School football team might be on hand to assist at the site.
In other business, council reminded residents that newly-installed water and sewer Superintendent Colton Kidd will now handle questions from residents regarding water and sewer matters.
