GRASS AND WEEDS - Please remember to maintain your lawn not to exceed six inches (6”). This includes the backyard and front yard. To avoid additional expense to clean the storm sewers, please do not blow your grass clippings into the street. Any violations will be remedied by the City at the owner’s expense. Any nuisance mowing not paid will be assessed to the county auditor and collected as property taxes. The purpose of keeping yards maintained at a uniform height is to beautify and preserve the appearance of the city in order to prevent unsightly, offensive or nuisance conditions. This shows visitors the pride we have in our city.
TREES - Property owners shall keep trees trimmed so that all branches will be at least twelve (12) feet above the surface of the street and eight (8) feet above the sidewalks. These requirements allow residents to utilize the sidewalks safely and for garbage trucks and other service vehicles to utilize the streets without damage to their vehicles or injury to their employees.
So that the streets can be plowed, no person shall park, abandon or leave unattended any vehicle on any public street, alley or City-owned off-street parking area between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. during the months of November, December, January, February and March. It is the responsibility of the abutting property owners to remove snow, ice, and accumulations promptly from sidewalks. It is unlawful for any person to throw, push, or place any ice or snow from private property, sidewalks, or driveways onto the street. You will be charged if the city must go back and clean up in front of your property due to pushing snow in the street after plows have cleared the street. You can view the entire City of Reinbeck Ordinances on our website at www.reinbeck.org or at City Hall. Thank you for your cooperation in allowing the city streets and alleys to get cleared in a timely manner and for keeping the sidewalks clear.
