Legislation was just passed this week addressing high grass and weeds within the Village. This ordinance states weed and grass height cannot exceed 8 inches in height. Costs, fines and assessments are outlined in the ordinance as well as other penalties which could include the filing of a criminal complaint in Village Mayor’s Court if the terms of the ordinance are violated. You can read the complete detail of the ordinance here.
Letters are currently being prepared and will be going out in the mail for violators of this ordinance this week. If you have a property you would like to report, please go to “Share Your Questions or Concerns” and fill out a form which will go directly to the Village Administrator.
