Spring is Here!
With the warming weather and longer daylight hours, we will all be out tending to our lawns, trees, and gardens. A few reminders for maintenance requirements from the Town Code:
- Please keep your grass cut less than 6 inches in height.
- Please remove all weeds and foreign growth from your property. This includes sidewalks, street stormwater gutters, along fences, and property lines.
- Trees with limbs overhanging neighboring properties should be trimmed.
- No clippings or yard waste are permitted to be blown or placed into the street or gutters.
- Please remove staining of the exterior surfaces of your home, including outbuildings and fences, caused by mold, mildew and algae.
- Exterior painted surfaces such as soffits, fascia, and trim, are to be kept free of peeling, cracking paint and wood rot. These surfaces and those on steps, porches, and decks are to be kept structurally sound.
Please take advantage of the upcoming Town’s Bulk and Yard Waste Collection Days and follow the guidelines in the link below for dates and allowable items which may be picked up by Public Works.With just a few extra steps, we can all enhance the resiliency, property values, and beauty of our Coolest Small Town!
