During snow/ice events of two inches or more, vehicles must
be moved to allow for plowing of streets for the safety of
residents and others traveling within the Village limits.
On the even number day of the month, vehicles
may be parked on the street where building addresses end in
an even number; and on the odd numbered day, the odd side,
where parking is lawfully allowed, until the snow is removed.
In this way, within two days the whole street will be plowed
all the way to the curb. Once plowed, vehicles may park on
Upon the first violation, of the ordinance,
the owner will receive a warning. Upon the second violation,
he/she will receive a parking ticket, and upon the third violation,
the vehicle will be towed at the owner’s expense.
Property owners are responsible for clearing all snow and
ice from sidewalks adjacent to their property within 48 hours
of the end of the snowfall or precipitation. The Public Works
Department suggests that residents wait until the Village
plows have pushed back snow to the curb line before clearing
the sidewalk areas. This generally happens after the snow
has stopped. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO PLOW SNOW FROM DRIVEWAYS
AND WALKWAYS INTO THE ROAD. Remember residents/property owners
are also responsible for their snow removal contractor’s
Residents should also keep in mind that snow
plows are designed to remove snow from the roadway to the
edge of the road. It is likely that the plow will leave a
window of snow in front of driveways. Residents are responsible
for removing this snow.
The Public Works Department also suggests that residents make
certain their mailboxes are set according to Village guidelines.
(These guidelines are available at the Village Hall.) This
helps prevent them from getting hit by the plows.
Storm Sewer Grates & Fire Hydrants
The Public Works Department urges each homeowner to maintain
the storm drain in front of or close to their home, keeping
it free and clear of debris causing it to clog and not drain
properly, which in some cases would create freezing water
and/or flooding. Residents are also asked to clean around
any fire hydrants adjacent to their property so they can be
found in an emergency.
GRASS & WEEDS POLICY
The Village Council passed Ordinance #1486-06
regulating grass and weeds within the Village. Village residents/property
owners will only receive one written notice from the Police
Department when in violation. Residents/property owners are
considered to be in violation when grass and/or weeds exceed
eight inches in height. If found to be in violation of this
ordinance, the Village will see that weeds and/or grass are
cut and removed. Such cutting and removing shall be at the
owner's expense and the costs, together with an administrative
fee of 20% shall be assessed against the lot or land. Such
administrative fees shall not exceed $200.00.
