2019 Branch Pickup

There is only one branch pickup scheduled for 2019.  Branches must be out at the curb by 7:00 am on April 1st.  Any branches put out after that time will not be picked up.  This is the only way to assure that the Public Works’ staff time is used efficiently.  Branches put out any other time will result in a fine.

Branches will be picked up for free, up to piles 4’ tall by 6’ wide by 8’ long, a standard truck bed size.  Any pile bigger than that will not be picked up until a fee is paid.  Fees start at $75.

Branches should be under 8’ long.  Longer branches will need to be cut before being picked up, a fee of $25 must be paid to the Village of Jerome for this service prior to pick-up.

Scouting for Food

Scouting for Food

Boy Scout Troop 210, chartered by the Jerome United Methodist Church, will be collecting non-perishable food items. They will be hanging bags on doors throughout Jerome on March 9th. The Scouts will collect the food on March 16th. All food collected will be given to the Asbury Children’s Supper Hour.

April 2nd Consolidated Election

A consolidated election will be held on April 2, 2019.  Five Village trustee positions will be on the ballot.  Candidates running for these positions are listed on the Sangamon County Clerk’s website. You may find your polling place and sample ballots here.

If you will not be able to make it to the polls on April 2nd there are two ways to vote otherwise.  Early voting at the County Elections office in the Sangamon County building begins February 21st.  You can also vote by mail.  For a schedule of early voting times or for an application to vote by mail, visit the Sangamon County Clerk’s website.

Large Item Pickup Program

Due to the need to concentrate Village Public Works staff time and resources on our roads, water system and community facilities, the large item pickup is cancelled this year.  If you have large items to dispose of, please contact your garbage disposal company or a licensed waste hauler listed on the Sangamon County Department of Public Health website to arrange for pickup.
