Village clarifies parkway maintenance responsibilities

By on June 23, 2014

ELBURN—The Elburn Village Board on Monday approved an ordinance that would require property owners to maintain village parkways adjacent to their property. This would include mowing the grass, keeping driveways in good repair, as well as keeping the frontage parkway free from weeds, rubbish and debris.

Building Commissioner Tom Brennan told board members at the June 2 Committee of the Whole meeting that the ordinance was necessary to clear up any ambiguity.

The maintenance of parkway trees is an exception to these requirements, and trustee Pat Schuberg asked that a cross reference be included to clarify that.
