Village President’s Message

Welcome warmer drier weather!

Summer is a great time to get those small and large projects done around your house. Did you know that some might need a building permit? When in doubt call or stop at the village hall and ask if you need one and remember to give yourself plenty of time to get the permit before you want to start the work. Fees double if the work is started without a building permit and the project could be delayed.

Village ordinances require basic maintenance and upkeep of properties. Cut your lawn on a regular basis and make sure to stop the spread of any noxious weeds. When cutting your lawn please do not blow the grass clippings into the street. Also, look around the outside of your house and clear out any extra items you have stored outside and no longer work or you no longer use. You could sell, dispose, recycle or donate them to a local charity. If you still have a use for it find a spot to store it in your garage, shed or basement.

Garbage pickup is on Mondays and garbage cans (carts) can only be out 24 hours before and after garbage pick up. Just a few reminders of the cart placement:

  • Carts should be within 18 inches of the edge of your property. Carts cannot be placed on the street.
  • Place carts at least three feet away from fixed objects and each other.

We have a beautiful lakefront park and beach area for all to enjoy. Please be mindful of residences to the north and south and their private properties when enjoying Hika Park.

The village website at is continually being updated with useful information, bookmark it today. You will find everything from office hours, contacts, meeting minutes, park rules, park rental information, building permit rules and yard waste hours to village history…and much more.

I’m proud to call Cleveland home!
