While everything owned by the Village of Biron - from fire trucks to curbs and sidewalks - belongs to all our residents, few things touch people's lives more directly and in more positive ways, than public parks. The shelter house makes our Village park a nicer and more useful place. You may have noticed the beautiful engraved bricks on the shelter house. If you would like to take advantage of an opportunity to participate, consider purchasing a commemorative brick to show your pride in our community. An order form is located on the Permits/Forms page.
