Waupun Mayor Talks Homeowner Grass Clippings

(Waupun) Waupun Mayor Julie Nickel is reminding residents that the city has an ordinance that prohibits blowing grass clippings into the streets, on sidewalks, and other public surfaces. When wet the clippings can pose a danger for bikes, motorcycles and others. Keeping the clippings off hard public surfaces also helps the city manage stormwater runoff. Town of Ripon Police recently issued a similar warning reminding residents that it falls under a local ordinance and state statute as “debris on the roadway,” which both carry fines.
