GIFFORD — Gifford village board member Dustin Ehler announced over the weekend that no additional storm debris may be brought onto the village’s curbside easement, effective at 5 p.m. Sunday.
All curbside debris remaining after that time will be collected by the Illinois Department of Transportation beginning today and continuing through Tuesday, if necessary.
The remaining debris not brought to the curbside easement by the Sunday deadline becomes the responsibility of the property owner and will need to be disposed of at property owners’ expense, Ehler said.
Ehler added that the village dump site has been posted with a note that anyone who takes part in unauthorized dumping there will be subject to citations and fines.
Meanwhile, a Gifford relief concert has been scheduled for 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Iron Post, 120 S. Race St., U.
A group of area musicians are joining together with the Community Center for the Arts to help raise funds for the village of Gifford.
Among those scheduled to perform are the Mackville Bluegrass Band, Ed Shackleferd, Tom Faux and Robin Kearton, Rebecca Rego, Jose Agusti, and Sam Payne.
Donations will be taken at the door, and will all go toward the Gifford tornado relief fund.
The Community Center for the Arts will be taking donations in the days leading up to the concert for those people unable to attend the event. Donations may be deposited in the mail slot across from the elevator in the first-floor lobby of C4A, located at 103 N. Race St,, U.
Hours are 9 a.m. to noon and 3 to 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, and 3 to 7 p.m. Wednesday.
