(ORLEANS) - Orleans Town officials have received numerous complaints about property owners who have not cut their grass and about trash and other items littering yards.

Town officials are reminded residents that lawns and lots in town must be kept mowed, and trash items and other debris must be picked up.

Residents are urged to refrain from blowing grass clippings into the streets and roadways, as this practice prohibited by ordinance, clogs the storm drains and contributes to the town's overall flooding problems during periods of heavy rainfall.

Officials say several residents have been sent notices and those not complying will be turned over to the town attorney. If property owners do not clean up their properties, town employees can do the work and owners be billed for the work..

The town contracts services of Ron Taylor to spray for mosquitoes and is asking residents to continue to assist in those efforts for general health and safety by keeping all yards and lots mowed off, any brush type items removed, and any type of standing water removed.

Old tires should be discarded and rain gutters and down spouts should be checked and cleaned regularly to allow water to flow freely.
