Retired Conrady Crossing Guard Says “Thank You.”

Maryann Anifer, who helped thousands of Conrady students cross Roberts Road during her 12 years as a school crossing guard, gave a heartfelt ‘thank you’ for being a part of the North Palos School District 117 family.

Ms. Anifer thanked the board and the teachers, staff and students for their kindness and support as well as for the opportunity to serve the community.  Hills Baseball and Softball also recognized Maryann on opening day this past Saturday.

Hickory Hills Changes Waste Haulers

All residents should have received notification that LakeShore Recycling Systems (LRS) will replace Waste Management as the city’s new residential waste and recycling company.  The Waste Management contract was expiring so the city went out to bid for a new 5 year contract.  Both Waste Management and LRS submitted bids, but the LRS bid was 15% lower.   To put that in perspective, annually, this will result in over $60 savings to the homeowner.
