When Disposing of Rubbish


Every occupant of a structure shall dispose of all rubbish in a clean and sanitary manner by placing such rubbish in an approved container.

The owner of every occupied premise shall supply approved covered containers for rubbish. Don‘t put your trash out to early because animals will get into it. (This does not mean garbage bags piled by the street.) Remember when your trash has been picked up take your trash cans back to your home so they aren’t in traffics way blocking parking spaces or sidewalks.


A lot of people in town are keeping their grass cut, but the sidewalks that run in front of your home with grass and weeds on them are your responsibility also. If you have a lot and it has a block wall in front of it, most generally there is a walkway in front of the lot. So when you are cutting the bank or the front lawn, remember the sidewalk area is your responsibility also. Remember when cutting your grass blow the grass back onto your property and not into the street. The grass clogs drains and can cause a vehicle or motor cycle to lose traction on the street. I have heard that the grass on the streets is like driving on ice.


302.4 All premises and exterior property shall be maintained free from high grass and weeds. All noxious weeds shall be prohibited. Weeds shall be defined as all grasses, annual plants and vegetation, other than trees, shrubs, flowers provided however this term shall not include cultivated flowers and gardens.


We hope everyone is having a nice summer.
