Superintendent of Public Works
Curbside Leaf Removal: Leaf removal will begin on Monday, October 12 and commence on Friday, December 18. The Service crew will collect Village wide on Mondays and Fridays during this time period. Please have leaves piled in the tree lawn and avoid piling on the sidewalk and in the road.
Fire Hydrants: If you have a hydrant in your front yard, please keep the grass trimmed around it. Having your hydrant visible makes it easier for the Fire Department to find and work around it in the case of an emergency.
Ordinance 1341.21 RANK VEGETATION AND LANDSCAPE FEATURES.
Lawns and landscaping within a public right of way shall be kept free of rank vegetation. Lawns and landscaping on private property shall be kept from becoming overgrown and unsightly and shall be maintained so as not to constitute a blighting or deteriorating effect on the surrounding neighborhood. Rank vegetation and landscaping features may not obstruct the vision of motorists and pedestrians traffic on or near public roads.
“Rank vegetation” means any growth of weeds or grass to a height of ten inches or higher.
