MAINTAIN GRASS, WEEDS, LEAVES
IMPROVE DITCH DRAINAGE.
City of Burlington requests your assistance to help keep our city attractive by keeping grass and weeds cut. Keeping grass clippings, leaves, and debris out of ditches will improve drainage.
City Code 8-401 states the person in charge of the property is responsible for grass and weed control between property lines of said property and the centerline of any adjacent street or alley, including but not limited to sidewalks, streets, alleys, easements, rights-of-way and all other areas, public or private.
Code 8-402 sets the maximum height of twelve inches (12″) for grass and weeds.
Ordinance 782 sets the charge for the City to mow and weedeat nuisance properties at $150 per hour, with the minimum being $150.00. The City does not wish to be in the private lawn maintenance business.
Your adherence to city ordinances is appreciated.

City of Burlington and the Street Superintendent are very proactive in maintaining and improving the city’s streets. Bowers Civil Engineering was hired in 2011 to do a thorough evaluation of all streets in Burlington. Street Superintendent Mast and Norman Bowers worked together to develop Burlington’s Pavement Management Plan. Each year, the plan is reviewed, accomplishments are recorded, and goals are set for continued street maintenance and improvement.
Burlington’s streets have improved significantly since City of Burlington began using the Pavement Management Program to plan it’s various street improvement projects .

NOTICE from CITY OF BURLINGTON
WIPES CLOG SEWER SYSTEM
Please, DO NOT FLUSH WIPES of any type. City of Burlington is experiencing sewer system problems caused by the flushing of various types of wipes.
Although baby wipes, cleansing cloths, and moist wipes and towelettes may be labeled as flushable, most of them do not dissolve when flushed down a toilet. Wipes are getting caught in the sewerlines and are wrapping round sewer pumps.
Wipes are a major cause of sewer blockages and backups; and they are increasing the time and cost to maintain our sewer system.
We need your help to keep our sewer system working efficiently.
DO NOT FLUSH WIPES. THROW THEM IN THE TRASH.
