Raking Into Street is a Village Code Violation

Nov 09, 2015

It is a violation of the Village Code of Ordinances to rake leaves or place other landscape waste in the street and doing so can lead to more problems for you and your neighbors. When drainage grates are blocked by landscape waste flooding often occurs. Leaves can also find their way into the stromwater sewer system which can lead to back-ups and because water isn't allowed to drain properly. Residents can be subject to fines between $50 and $500 for each offense and each day on which a violation occurs or continues to shall be considered a separate offense.

The Village of Mt. Zion recommends mulching leaves with a mulching lawn mower or bagging leaves for curbside pick-up from your garbage hauler.  Please contact your garbage hauler for specific yard waste pick-up days in your neighborhood.

Hydrant Flushing

Aug 22, 2015

The Village of Mt. Zion will continue to flush fire hydrants to remove materials that collect in the water mains through the months of September and October. Crews will work between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily.

During the hours of flushing, residents connected to the Village water system may experience temporary discolored water and lower than normal water pressure. The water discoloration is not a health risk. The Village of Mt. Zion recommends not doing laundry until the water runs clear, as the discoloration may stain laundry.
