Yard Waste

It’s getting to be “leaf raking time” again! And the Board wanted to remind you that your yard waste is picked up on the same day as the trash. Waste Management will take leaves (and other yard waste) in garbage bags or in trash cans labeled “Yard Waste”. So please, DO NOT rake your leaves and throw them into the road, drainage ditches or common areas in the city. If you’ve taken the time to rake them, just place them into the above-mentioned containers. Also, remember that sticks can also be placed in garbage cans. If you don’t have an extra garbage can, remember to bind the sticks up with rope so that Waste Management will pick them up. They will NOT pick up yard waste of any sort that is just piled up in front of your home.


Drainage Issues

The city has had many issues with water (NOT) draining in some areas. After contacting MSD and some investigating done by the Board, one of the reasons discovered was…YARD WASTE! Please do NOT dispose of your yard waste (or other garbage) in the drainage ditches in the city. These need to be clean and NOT filled with grass clippings, leaves and/or sticks. Your taxes pay for the removal of yard waste by Waste Management on Wednesday mornings. Please, help out your neighbors and dispose of your yard waste properly!


Maintenance to YOUR Property

We have received complaints on homes that are in disrepair within the city. Gutters need to be cleaned out…especially if you have trees/grass growing out of them! This is a health hazard & will ruin the value of your property. Also, remember that the trees growing in the easement in front of your home are your responsibility.

Another thought, if you are looking to ‘clean up’ your landscaping, right now is a great time to get some wonderful bargains at your local home improvement stores! Go check out those sales!



Trick or Treating will be on Monday, October 31st at 5:30pm–7:30pm. If you want to hand out candy to the little ones, please put your porch light on. Happy Haunting!


Snow Removal

It’s scary to think, but soon it will be snowing. The Board thought it would be a good idea to remind you of the city’s procedure for snow removal. Anything below three inches, we have salt spread on the main roads and intersections. With three or more inches of snow, we have all of the roads plowed for your convenience. We try very hard to get at it before it gets out of control, but please try to be patient as this does take time to do. Also, another snow removal issue is vehicles parked on the street. The snow plow drivers have great difficulty maneuvering their trucks around automobiles parked on the street. So we are requesting that you do NOT park on the street (which is illegal) if you know that these men will be around removing snow or spreading salt. It is a huge help to them and makes their jobs go faster! We would very much appreciate your help in this matter! Thank you!


Neighborhood Holiday Decoration Contest

The holidays are sneaking up on us again this year! Are you ready for the good food and the time you will be spending with your loved ones? Well, in all the rush to get things complete, please, don’t forget to decorate your home! The city is having the annual Holiday Decorating Contest again this year. Like last year, the board is looking for the most creative & original decorations, so try something new and get that imagination working! Cash prizes will be rewarded to three creative residents: $100 for first place, $75 for second place, & $50 for third place. Houses must be decorated by December 18th. Winners will be posted on the website ( Good luck and happy holidays!
