Summer Lawn Maintenance

Village Code states that grass lawns shall be maintained at a height of less than 8".  Staff investigates properties on a compliant basis.  If a property is found to be in violation, a letter will be sent to the property owner giving them 5 days to correct the issue.  If they do not, staff will issue a work order for the property and it will be cut by our contractor as schedule allows. The property owner will then be issued a bill for the cutting service and administrative time.

Corrections do not occur overnight, so please be patient while either the property owner or the Village as we work to get the violation corrected. You can submit properties you feel are in violation on our Citizen Request System found on the Village website. Please help keep neighborhoods looking great and maintain your lawns. The Village thanks you for your cooperation.
