CELORON - Two Celoron residents were honored for their community service Monday.
During a Village Board meeting, Celoron officials announced the recipients of the annual Celoron Community Outstanding Hero Award. Village officials present the award each year to a community member who has been a leading example of service to the community. The recipients were Jim Eck and Peggy Hart.
John Keeney, Celoron mayor, said both individuals lend their help by volunteering during the Celoron Rib-Fest and by assisting in other activities in the village throughout the year.

''Both can be found during the Rib-Fest, helping to setup and tear down,'' Keeney said. ''Peggy, during the summer time, can be seen planting flowers in the park and Jim, during the winter, helps us in setting up the lights in the village.''
The 2011 Celoron Community Service Award went to Dorothy Lindstrom and Mark Smith.
In other business, the village raised the cost of dumpster fees from $680 to $725. Also, new Celoron garbage disposal customers using a dumpster will have a decision to make on whether to purchase a trash receptacle or they can pay the village $100 a year for three years to rent one. After the three years, customers won't pay the additional charge for the dumpster, but the village will own the trash receptacle. Keeney said the reason for the price jump is the price for dumpsters, diesel fuel and tipping fees have also increased.
