The Oblong Village Board Wednesday night set trick or treat night, changed the homecoming parade route and authorized the sale of old light poles.
Children will be able to go trick or treating on Wednesday, Oct. 31, from 5 to 8 p.m. at houses with porch lights on.
There has been a change in the homecoming parade route for Friday. The Oblong High School Homecoming Parade will leave the high school travel north down Range Street to Indiana, then turn west to Garfield, to Main and then to the grade school. The parade is Friday at 1:30 p.m.
It was decided that the intersection is wider at Indiana than at Missouri, where the parade was originally planned to go.
The old concrete light poles that were replaced along Main Street during the Route 33 construction project have been deemed as surplus to the village and are being offered for sale. Anyone interest in the poles should contact the village.
Fall cleanup will be Thursday, Oct. 18, in the village.
Oblong Police Chief Chad Pusey was recognized for his work with the Junior Police Academy. Pusey also reported there will be a police training session on field sobriety tests in Oblong on Oct. 12.
