Our Titles 12, 13, 15 and 16 of our code were also updated at the same meeting. Click HERE to review.

Update Summary

Titles 12, 13, 15 and 16. This was done to ensure that the Village is still up to date with practices in the Village, State and Federal.

Title 12 has to do with streets, sidewalks and public spaces. This also deals with landscape and tree preservation.

Title 13 has to do with utilities, water billing, billing cycle, and defines sewer connection.

Title 15 has to do with building and construction.  Lake County Building Department assisted with these updates. Focused on state and federal regulations. Fences, hedges and water features were grouped together concisely. Reimbursement of fees were added to this chapter.

Title 16 is the subdivision ordinance. A lot of this is regulated by the State Plat Act. Items introduced were multi use path regulations and updated certificates that are on the back of a Plat. Wanted to make sure the Village is up to date on all state regulations.
