105.06 SEPARATION OF YARD WASTE REQUIRED. All yard waste shall be separated by the owner or occupant from all other solid waste accumulated on the premises and shall be composted or burned on the premises, placed in City-approved bags and set out for collection by the City, or deposited at the City disposal site. As used in this section, “yard waste” means any debris such as grass clippings, leaves, garden waste, brush, and trees. Yard waste does not include tree stumps.

The City recently was charged approximately double ($400 vs. $200) for weekly landfill fees due to the contamination of yard waste in the garbage collected in our community and dumped at the Black Hawk County Landfill. Please separate your yard waste from your regular garbage! Citations may be issued for property owners/renters in violation of this ordinance (105.06).


55.06 AT LARGE PROHIBITED. It is unlawful for any owner to allow an animal to run at large within the corporate limits of the City.

“At Large” means an animal found off premises of the owner, not restrained within a motor vehicle, or housed in a veterinary hospital or kennel and upon the public streets, alleys, public grounds, parks within the city or private property of other citizens within the city; however, a dog or cat shall not be deemed at large if: (A) It is attached to a leash of sufficient strength and of not more than six feet in length and such leash is held by a competent person, or (B) It is accompanied by or at the side of the owner or competent person and obedient to the commands of the owner or competent person.

55.17 SANITATION. It is the duty of every person owning or having custody or control of an animal to clean up, remove and dispose of the feces deposited by such animal upon public property, park property, public right-of-way or the property of another person.





It is unlawful for any person to harbor or keep a vicious/dangerous dog within the city. A dog is deemed to be vicious/dangerous when it has attacked or bitten, without provocation, causing injury to or to otherwise endanger the safety of not only humans but also any other domestic animal, or when such property to attack or bite persons or other domestic animals is known or ought reasonably to be know to the owner.
