Ordinance 2019-1 for a list of prohibited items.



The President and several trustees have received complaints from
concerned citizens about dog and other animal waste being left in their
yards and on public property.  Do NOT leave your animal’s waste on
property that you are not responsible for.  Pick it up!  Carry your
“pooper scooper” or a bag and take it home with you.  This is breaking
the ordinance and you will be fined.  If you don’t mow it or scoop snow
off of it – do NOT leave your animal’s waste there.
