Grass/Weed Violation Sweeps to Begin May 1st

Village staff will begin our annual Tall Grass/Weeds compliance sweeps beginning on May 1st and running monthly until roughly October.  As a private property owner, citizens are responsible for the maintenance of your entire property.  This does include along your fence line, drainage ditches, and between the sidewalk and the curb. 

Any private property with vegetation (grass/weeds) exceeding 8" shall be issued a letter of violation.  Failure to correct the violation within the stated time period or contact the Village to agree on a revised acceptable compliance date will be mowed by our contractor and then billed back to the property owner plus administrative fees.  Multiple violations on the same property during the growing season could result in the issuance of a citation.

Please do your part to keep Bellevue looking great.  If you have any questions or would like to report a property you believe to be in violation, please contact Andrew Vissers at 920-468-5225.
