Village of Northfield officials report they will hire a contractor over the next couple of weeks to chip the branches brought down from the Nov. 5 storm.

The branches must be 6 inches or smaller in diameter and placed on the curb for chipping.

Residents are asked to make sure their leaves and branches are in separate piles and make sure the branches do not go out into the street

If there are branches in the leaf piles, they will not be picked up.
