Reminders for All Residents:
Dogs at Large/Leash Laws: Dogs are not allowed to freely roam the streets. Dogs must be leashed and accompanied by the owner or other person having charge of the dog (City Ordinance Sec. 5-36). Fines for "Dogs at Large" are now being imposed in the amount of $145.00 for the first offense; $212.50 for the 2nd offense; and $280.00 for the 3rd offense.
Property Maintenance/Upkeep: All property owners and tenants are responsible for keeping their properties/premises in a sanitary condition and to prevent the accumulation or overgrowth of vegetation, trash or rubbish, etc. (City Ordinance Sec. 13-1; 13-10).
Mosquito Spraying: Residents are charged $2.00 per month (on an annual basis) for mosquito spraying. This spraying is done by plane and occurs twice per month. It should be noted that the timing of such spraying is dependent upon the weather. If you have standing water in or around your yard, or heavy vegetation, you may need to use additional measures to control the mosquitoes in your area. Although the spraying provided by the city cannot completely eliminate the mosquitoes, we hope that it does offer some relief given the fee is nominal when shared by all residents.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact City Hall at 229-874-1259 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
