With Durand Railroad Days fast approaching and the End of Summer Cruise on the horizon, the Durand Police Department would like to remind residents that ordinance enforcement is in full effect.

Per City Code 82-32, “It is the duty of the occupant or the owner of every premise within the City to cut or mow any grass and to cut, mow, remove or destroy by lawful means any such weeds whenever such grass/weeds have grown to a length of six inches.”

Non-compliant property owners will be notified by the city’s Ordinance Violation Officer. If the occupant or owner of the property fails to comply with the City Code after being notified of the violation, a citation may be issued and/or the city may have the grass/weeds cut at the property owner’s expense.

Per City Code 34-72, “No partially dismantled, inoperable, or wrecked motor vehicle(s) shall be stored out of doors within the City for a period of time in excess of seven days, unless within an approved storage area. A vehicle is not considered a junk vehicle if it has an engine that runs, has four wheels and four pneumatic tires capable of holding air, and a working battery.”

Per City Code 10 (6-7), Pets at City Events, “No person shall allow a domestic animal owned by them or under their control (leashed or not) upon public streets, sidewalks, and other public property in the following areas of the City during Railroad Days and End of Summer Cruise: 100 and 200 blocks of N. Saginaw St., 100 block of Hagel St, 100 blocks of east and west Clinton streets, 100 block of W. Main St, 100 and 200 blocks of E. Main St., 100 block of Railroad Street.”

Per City Code 10-8 (1-2), Pets at City Events, “No person shall allow a domestic animal owned by them or under their control (leashed or not) upon public property in the following areas of the City during Farmer’s Market and Wednesday Night Live: 100 block of Hagel St., 100 block of Railroad St., 100 Block of Main Street.”

A person who requires a service dog is exempt from both aforementioned animal-related ordinances. Persons in violation may be issued a citation.

Per City Code 50-184 (b), Bicycles, Roller Blades, Skate Boards, “It is a violation of this Code to ride a bicycle, roller blades, roller skates, skate board, coaster, or similar device on a public sidewalk, parking lot, and or street within the following areas of the City: 100 and 200 blocks of N. Saginaw St., 100 blocks of east and west Clinton streets, 100 and 200 blocks of east and west Main streets.” A person who violates this Code may be issued a citation.
