Fire Hydrants

All property owners whose property is adjacent to a fire hydrant shall also remove the snow and ice surrounding the hydrant so that access to the hydrant can be obtained from all sides.

Ice

If removal of ice is difficult the owner shall keep ice sprinkled with ashes, salt, sawdust or sand.

Placement of Snow onto Village-owned property and streets

Persons shall not cause snow and ice to be removed onto a Village street or similarly Village-owned property.

Violations

1. A property who has violated these rules will be issued a warning only once during the snow season.

2. If the property owner fails to remove the snow and ice after 48 hours following the warning or continues violating snow and ice rules the Village may complete the necessary work to remove the snow and ice.  The owner may also be subject to fines and billed for any services rendered.  If the bill is not paid the costs will be special assessed through the property tax bill.
