Welcome to New Chicago

Stick/Limb Removal

Starting Friday, October 28th, the town will end its stick/limb pickup and will start focusing on leaf pickup. Please have any sticks, limbs, branches placed by the road before Friday. This operation will resume in Spring 2023. Please call the town hall and let them know if you have branches out to save time for the workers.
