The City of Buckhannon Spring/Summertime do’s and don’ts for Residents – City Officials would like to remind residents to be thoughtful of visitors and their neighbors as we approach the summer season. Several issues appear each year that cause complaints to be filed with the City.  Here are the dos and don’ts for lawn care: 

#1 – Keep grass clippings out of the street – Leaving grass clippings in the street contributes to blocked storm drains and an increased threat of local flooding. When you or your yard service finishes mowing, excess grass MUST be collected and disposed of properly.

#2 – Lawn care needs to be done weekly – Proper yard maintenance enhances your neighborhood’s attractiveness. Failure to mow your lawn, having excess materials in your yard, or having an open porch filled with “stuff” often become eyesores for your neighbors. Please help make our City Shine for our visitors and your neighbors. As a regular subscriber to the City service for trash collection, you may call and arrange to have bulky goods and other unwanted items picked up by City crews for a reasonable fee.

#3 – Swimming Pools & Other Water Features – In the City of Buckhannon: “Private swimming pools containing water more than 24 inches in depth shall be permitted only when located in rear yards, and further when completely enclosed by a fence or buildings or combination thereof of a height of six feet (6’) in the case of fences, and six feet (6’) or greater in the case of buildings, and generally protected in such a manner to avoid becoming an attractive nuisance especially to children.”
