This is a reminder to the public that when mowing and maintaining a property, the grass clippings and brush cannot be left in the roadway or right of way. Please keep grass clippings in the yard and off the streets. We need to prevent these clippings from entering our storm sewers and off the roadways. Municipal ordinance 53.04, provides remedies for disposing of clippings and brush. These items can be temporarily placed in the front yard or right of way for curbside collection. Thank you for your assistance. Terry Scott Chief of Police

The Farmer City Police Department wants the public to become aware of our efforts to identify and enforce city ordinance violations for 2018. The public is reminded that they are responsible for the condition of their property and their vehicles. Property overgrown with weeds/trees and residences used for storage of surplus property that is considered a nuisance will be addressed. The City is looking for the public’s assistance to correct and remedy these situations instead of enforcement action. If an agreement cannot be reached, a summons will be issued for a court appearance. The public is reminded of the City’s burn ordinance. Days for burning are Thursday – Saturday, 8:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m. except for the months of July and August. What you can burn is, landscape wastes, including vegetable or plant refuse, tree branches, brush, leaves and similar material. Those individuals burning are reminded to be aware of weather conditions including wind that might cause smoke or obstruct the roadway. Additionally, it is the property owner’s responsibility to monitor and control their burn, not leaving the fire unattended. It is time for the 2018 golf cart stickers. Please contact the Police Department to obtain one. Those who have never registered their golf cart or UTV must do so to drive on the city streets. Terry A. Scott Chief of Police
