Floodplain Message – April 11, 2024

Mowing grass into the street is not allowed by City Code.  Grass clippings can clog storm drains, increase flooding potential, cause water quality and floodplain issues and ultimately cost taxpayers money.  Please do not mow grass into the street.  If you see grass being mowed into the street contact the City of Ottawa at 815-433-0161 ext. 225 or 230.
