Arlington Heights Eyes Helping EAB Treatments

Arlington Hts. residents may soon request $50 from the village to help combat emerald ash borer. The village board gave unanimous preliminary approval to a cost-sharing program Monday night, Apr. 9 that would allow residents to apply for 50% up to $50 for treating ash trees on public parkways. The program would be for a one-time treatment within the next two years and have a sunset date of Oct. 31, 2013. It will also work retroactively for those who have already paid to treat their trees. The village board must still approve the program at an upcoming regular meeting.
