City Ordinance Reminders

April 18, 2017

Dog waste must be collected and disposed of in a trash can. The City has provided trash receptacles and dog waste disposal units throughout town. Dog waste is not suitable for recycle, compost or storm drains. Not collecting dog waste or intentionally throwing it into a City storm drain is an ordinance violation. (City Ordinance Sec. 10-37)

Trash cans, recyclables, and compost bags should be placed out at the street no earlier than 5 pm on Thursday. All materials must be out at the curb by 7 am Friday morning. (City Ordinance Sec. 38-74)

Riding a bicycle on the sidewalks downtown is not permitted. Bicycle riders should walk their bike on the sidewalk in the downtown area. This is especially important to avoid collisions right in front of entrances to our downtown businesses. (City Ordinance Section 54-133)

Spring is a time of rapid plant growth and also brings greater use of City sidewalks. If you have plants, shrubs or trees on your property that have grown over the sidewalk, please trim them back so that they are not obstructing the safe use of the sidewalks.
