Lawn Mowing

Grass clippings are not allowed in the street due to City Ordinance in accordance with WI-DNR guidelines for stormwater run-off.


It is the duty of every property owner to mow all grasses or weeds exceeding one foot in height per City ordinance. A notice from Code Enforcement will be sent to the property owner if grasses or weeds exceed 12 inches in height. Only one notice is sent per year. The property owner has five days to correct the violation after the notice is sent. If the violation is not corrected, City staff will mow the property and charge the property owner a minimum of $100 per hour per lot.


Report a lawn online that is over 12 inches in height or contact Code Enforcement at (608) 868-6910.
