All pets must be on a leash
55.06: AT LARGE PROHIBITED. It is unlawful for any owner to allow an animal to run at large within the corporate limits of the City. Many people have very real fears about dogs. Children and elders especially cannot protect themselves from unwelcome advances. It is important that all residents and visitors in our community feel safe and that includes knowing that dogs are restrained. “At large” dogs also cause many disturbances to other dogs who are contained. In addition, containing your animal ensures it’s own safety.
No Grass Clippings in Street
Left in the street, grass clippings and leaves not only are an eyesore, they clog storm drains which means rain water can’t drain away as fast as it should. Ultimately, it can cause water to back up in basements, cause flooding of our streets and increase maintenance costs. Because of our high water table and drainage concerns, this is a particular concern to Salix. In addition, when grass clippings remain in the street and get wet, they become slick and hazardous to pedestrians, drivers, cyclists and motorcycles.
When mowing your yard, please mow the first few paths near the street so that the grass clippings blow back into your yard and out of the streets.
