  • Mailbox Policy

The Village of Prairie Grove adopted a mailbox policy on April 17, 2012.  The purpose is during snow removal operations, many miles of roadway must be cleared and maintained for safe travel.  Unfortunately, during this process, a few mailboxes may be damaged by the weight of the thrown snow and in some instances by the strike of a plow truck.  The Village of Prairie Grove respects its residents' property and realizes the importance of our residents receiving mail in a timely fashion.  This policy is put in place to direct Village Staff with regard to guidelines by which they can refer to when determining whether damage is the result of a snow plow truck striking a properly installed and operating mailbox.  Please click here for a copy of our policy.

 

  • Firewood/Woodchips

This new service is available to Prairie Grove residents on a first come/first serve basis.  Residents are welcome to pick up firewood & woodchips at our Public Works Facility located at 4507 Gracy Road, Monday-Friday, 7:00AM-3:30PM.  Please note that you must be done loading by 3:30PM so the facility can be secured.
