Ordinance  - 2013-09  
IT IS UNLAWFUL TO RAKE, PLACE OR MOW FALLEN TREE LEAVES OR GRASS CLIPPINGS ON THE PAVEMENT OR INTO THE GUTTER OF ANY PUBLIC STREET.

SECTION I. 

(1) It shall be unlawful to rake, place, or mow fallen tree leaves,     grass clippings and or garden waste of any type onto the     pavement or into the gutter of any public street unless directed by     the Village of Mount Sterling. 

(2) No person shall permit grass clippings from mower swaths to     remain upon sidewalks, street pavements, gutters of any public     street, or on abutting property not owned or occupied by said     person. 

(3) Whoever violates this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor on     first offense; on each subsequent offense such person is guilty     of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree. 

The Village of Mount Sterling, Ohio desires to keep its street, sidewalks and gutters free of leaves and grass clipping, and fallen tree leaves and/or grass clipping causes storm water to backup into the streets, sidewalks and basements, and; the backup of storm water is a health and safety problem that the Village of Mount Sterling must be addressed immediately.
