Shouldering work:  

Our Town Crew may be in your neighborhood this summer working to maintain the shoulders along the Town roads.  This work involves either cutting away soil/grass that is preventing water from draining from the roads or it may involve adding gravel to shoulders that are lower than the pavement edge to prevent the road from cracking off.  This work is important for the longevity of the roads. Regular maintenance of the shoulders maximizes good pavement and allows run-off from rain and spring thawing.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact the Town Hall at 526-3354.

FIREWORKS:  

Please keep in mind that if it explodes or leaves the ground, you most likely need a permit.  "Fireworks" means anything manufactured, processed or packaged for exploding,emitting sparks or combustion which does not have another common use.  Please see our Town of Holland Fireworks Ordinance for more information. 
Permits are free!  However, you will need to obtain an application from the Town Clerk at least 48 hours before using fireworks.  Some basic information will be required such as the kind and quantity (not the dollar amount), date and time of use.  Keep in mind that you may not purchase the fireworks until you have a permit.
