TALL GRASS AND LITTER NOTICES BEING SENT OUT

TALL GRASS AND JUNK NOTICES ARE BEING SENT:

Tall grass notices are beginning to be sent from the Administrator’s Office.  From April through October, grass and/or weeds that reach a height of 12” of more will get a notice giving property owners 5 days to mow or the Village Utility Department will mow and charge the property owners $100.00 for any lot, except if the lot is larger than ½ acre the charge shall be $200.00.  If invoices sent for mowing are not paid by the property owner, the cost of the mowing can be placed on the real property taxes along with a $25.00 processing fee.

Litter or junk discovered on lots privately owned in the Village will have 15 days after the service of a notice from the Village to remove the litter.  Whoever violates this notification and does not cleanup said litter and/or junk, a fine not exceeding $500.00, a term of imprisonment not exceeding six (6) months, or both can be levied.

Both these regulations are outlined in Village Ordinance 2013-30, passed on July 15, 2013.  The cost of mowing was increased by Ordinance 2018-11, passed on July 17, 2018.
