Editor's note: The following is a press release from the village of Montgomery.
The Montgomery Beautification Committee will be sponsoring its popular Holiday Decorations Contest again this year.
As always, this is an opportunity for homes and businesses to be recognized for exceptional holiday displays. As was done last year, awards will be given only to homes or businesses that are nominated for consideration. Residents can nominate their own property or someone else's, simply by submitting the property address. Committee members will then visit the nominated addresses in order to select the winners. A sign will be placed in front of the properties selected for an award. Owners are asked to leave these signs up through the holidays, and they will be collected after the holidays are over.
Nominations will be accepted through Monday, Dec. 10, and judging will take place the evening of Wednesday, Dec. 12.
Nominate a property via the village website at www.ci.montgomery.il.us or by calling the Montgomery Public Works Department at (630) 896-9241.
