Getting Ready for Fall and Winter

Posted on September 3, 2015 at 3:05 PM by Judy Ferguson

The fall season can be a challenging time when it comes to taking care of your yard. We think about raking leaves, but don’t forget to keep your grass and weeds under control. Don’t put the lawn mower away too soon; remember it is your responsibility to mow the grass so it does NOT get too high. Also, make sure you keep the cattails and weeds under control. When leaves turn pretty colors and drop off the trees the result is a lot of work. Please remember, leaves should be bagged or placed in compost piles. Make sure that you don’t rake or plow leaves into the gutters, ditches or storm water drains; disposing of leaves in this manner is a violation of the erosion control ordinance and will clog the storm water drains along streets.

In addition, it’s time to start thinking about how you will care for your pets with cold and snowy weather around the corner. If your pets are outdoor animals or if they spend time outdoors, they will need a shelter with fresh straw and a wind break so they are properly protected from the elements. It is very important to keep the kennel area clean; make sure to remove the fecal matter at least once per week or more often depending on the number of animals that share the kennel or yard. Remember to keep fresh water available. Feed your animals and change the water at least twice daily. If the temperature is at or below freezing, remember to break the ice on the water or change it more frequently.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your pets or neighbors’ pets feel free to contact the Department of Code Enforcement at 316.744.2026 ext 301 during regular business hours.
