Ordinance 521.12: SWEEPING LITTER INTO GUTTERS PROHIBITED
No person shall sweep into or deposit in any gutter, street, or other public place within the Village, the accumulation of litter from any building or lot or from any public or private sidewalk or driveway. Persons owning or occupying property shall keep the sidewalk in front of their premises free from litter.
An excessive amount of yard clippings in the roadway leads to a blockage in the Village catch basins. This blockage costs the Village thousands of dollars to remove, which we as taxpayers are ultimately responsible for. This is a public notice to request the removal of yard clippings from the roadway. If you fail to comply with this request in the future, enforcement action will be taken. As a Village we aspire to keep the roadways and sidewalks as clean as possible. We appreciate your assistance in helping us keep our roadways clean. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
