News & Notes


LEASH AND PET WASTE REMOVAL LAWS
It is unlawful for any person to permit their dog or cat to go off the premises of the owner or keeper thereof, unless it is securely tied or led by a leash of a length of no more than 6 feet. It is also unlawful for any person responsible for any animal to allow it to soil, defile, or defecate on property other than that of the person responsible for the animal unless such waste is immediately removed. To help control the problem of dogs and cats running at large call the Public Works Department at 938-6655. After business hours call the Police Department at 938-6600.

SANITARY SEWER BACKUP INSURANCE
As a reminder, residents need to protect themselves against potential sanitary sewer backups. Residents should check with their insurance carriers regarding sewer backups to see if a rider is required for coverage. The City is not liable for these occurrences; therefore, individual coverage is needed.

SANITARY SEWER BLOCKAGES
We have, on occasion, encountered problems with grease deposits causing blockages in our sanitary sewer system and would like to remind Commercial and Residential customers to dispose of grease properly and avoid pouring it down the drain as it hardens over time and becomes lodged in the line causing backups and problems at the treatment facility.
