The City’s inspectors are actively working to keep our community well maintained, but we recognize these are trying times. If you receive a Notice of Ordinance Violation from our inspectors due to a property maintenance violation, and you have questions or need additional time due to extenuating circumstances, please call the City at (630) 293-2200, x141. The City is willing to work with you whenever possible.
Tall Grass and Weeds – All properties in West Chicago are required to keep grass trimmed to a height of less than eight inches. If you happen to receive a Notice of Ordinance Violation for tall grass and/or weeds, please mow your grass within seven days to prevent further enforcement action, such as fines and fees for City-contracted lawn cuttings. If you are unable to meet the deadline given, please call the City at (630) 293-2200, x 141.
Brush Pickup – Brush pickup runs from May to November of each year. Please avoid taking brush to the curb too early. Brush may be placed at the curb during the weekend just before pickup begins. Pay close attention to when brush pickup occurs, which is the first full week of the month (or the first Monday of each month). Note that tickets carrying fines starting at $50.00 will be issued, without prior notice, if brush is placed at the curb too soon.
