Village Regulations

Curfew
Any person under 17 years of age cannot be on Village streets
or in alleys, parks, or places of business in the Village between
the following hours:
Friday and Saturday …… 12:00 a.m. (midnight) – 6:00 a.m.
Sunday through Thursday …………… 11:00 p.m. – 6:00 a.m.

All Night Parking
All night parking in municipal lots and village streets is
prohibited between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. The
Chief of Police or a person authorized by the Chief may grant
occasional special all night parking permission which will
require registration of the vehicle in question with the Police
Department. Violators will be ticketed.

Alley Address
The Village requires that the legal address of all residents,
businesses, or other occupied property be permanently posted
on garages or fences that face an alley (if applicable) using
numerals that measure at least 3-1/2″ in height. These
numerals are available for purchase at cost through the
Building Department.

Snow
It is prohibited to plow snow or ice into streets or up against
fire hydrants. It helps fire fighters find and access hydrants
faster in the event of a fire, if the hydrant near your home or
business is cleared of snow. You can help keep your hydrant
clear.
Apartment or multi-unit complex dwelling owners are
required to clear off-street parking spaces and parking lots
within 12 hours after a 2″ snowfall.
Violators are subject to a fine and towing costs.
PARKING IN MUNICIPAL LOTS AFTER SNOWFALL:
No vehicle is allowed to park in any Municipal parking lot
after a snowfall of 2″ or more until the lot is plowed. The
Police Department is authorized to have vehicles in violation
towed, with the owner of said vehicle responsible for all
towing and storage costs.

Abandoned Vehicles
The Police Department has the authority to remove all junk
cars (inoperable vehicles). Village ordinance does not permit
leaving, keeping, or storing an inoperable motor vehicle on
public or private property, in view of the general public, for
more than seven days. Either the owner of the vehicle, or the
owner of the property on which it is parked is held
responsible. Violators are subject to a fine for each day the
inoperable vehicle remains on the property.

Pets
Pets (dogs and cats) are required to be licensed and have
rabies shots; wear a tag at all times and a leash when away
from owner’s property; and not to defecate or urinate on public
streets or sidewalks or neighbor’s property. Village code
permits only two pets per household. Violators are subject to
fine. Any pet found running loose will be impounded. To
RECLAIM a pet, proof of license and inoculation is required.
Owner is charged for housing and capturing the pet. Licenses
are available at the Village Office year round, and issued for
one year at a time at a nominal fee.

Grass/Weed Height
All weeds, grass, and other plant growth (other than
ornamental shrubbery), trees, and flowers must be kept
trimmed by the owner or occupant of the premises to a height
of 10″ or less from the ground. Any growth in excess of this
height is considered a nuisance, with the owner subject to
citation.

Suggestion / Complaint Forms
The Village keeps a file of Suggestion/Complaint forms
regarding property maintenance, code violations, or other
concerns submitted by residents or businesses. These reports
are reviewed by the Village Department Heads and the Mayor
who see the matter to a conclusion. We invite public
participation in this program to help enhance property values
and rid our Village of fire, safety and health hazards. You can also contact Trustee Kevin McGrier by clicking this LINK to leave your comments.
