Village News Room

From our own Village newsroom where we post press releases, announcements – anything of Village interest – to our groups and committees that advise the Board of Trustees within the major governmental departments, to the not-for-profit parntnerships that the Village collaborates with to provide special programs and events – here under “Village Info” you will find information about everything from business owner resources to local links and demographic information.

To contact the Village “newsroom” please email Jill Nees-Russell at news@portjeff.com
