VILLAGE OF ELM GROVE - Residents may wake up Tuesday morning to the smell or sight of smoke coming from Village Park.

The village will be working with a contractor Tuesday morning beginning at approximately 7 a.m. to perform a controlled burn during the morning hours. Large amounts of smoke are expected.

Controlled burns are often performed in the spring for a number of reasons including improving wildlife habitat, controlling invasive plant species, restoring and maintaining native plant communities and reducing wildfire potential.
