Welcome to the Village of Beecher
THE VILLAGE HALL WILL BE RELOCATING IN MID NOVEMBER
The Village has purchased the old bank building at 625 Dixie Highway (north of Buddy's Drive In) and will be moving in mid November. The new location will include a board room for Village meetings and a drive-thru window for making water bill payments to better serve the residents of Beecher. The tentative move date is November 14 & 15 depending on final completion of construction. The Police Department will expand into the current Village Hall space. They have been in need of additional office space for many years. Check the website regularly for updates on the move.
The Public Works Department began picking up leaves in the Village on Monday, October 13th. Leaves raked in rows along the curbside are picked up by a large vacuum machine on a weekly basis until the week of Thanksgiving. Residents should place leaves in a pile or row in the parkway between the sidewalk and curb as near to the street as possible. In areas without curbs, leaves should be placed on the grass or parkway at the edge of the street. The leaf machine will make at least one pass per week down each street in the Village.
The last day for yard waste bag pick up will be Monday, November 24th.
Brush pick-up will continue every other Monday until November 17th (on the same day recycling is collected).

Please note: Election filings will be accepted only at the new Village Hall located at 625 Dixie Highway.
