Property Maintenance

The Village of Fox Lake Code Enforcement Officer is responsible for enforcing the Property Maintenance Code adopted by the Village.

Please Remember
  • Maintain your property, keeping it clean of debris.
  • Grass must be kept cut on both occupied and vacant properties.
  • Parking is allowed on approved surfaces, not your lawn.
  • Boats, RV's, and trailers must be stored in the back or side yards or in the driveway.
  • Trash Containers can be put out after 6:00pm the evening before pickup.
  • Keep the noise level down.
  • Rental units need to be registered and inspected.
  • Garage sale signs are not allowed on public right-of-way and utility poles.
  • Trim tree branches and shrubbery so they do not obstruct the view of pedestrians or vehicle traffic.
  • Do not push or remove snow, leaves, landscape or other yard waste from private property onto the public right-of-way.
  • Clean up after your dog and please keep them leashed.

See the 2009 International Property Maintenance Code for details on all rules listed above.

Your cooperation is appreciated in keeping the Village of Fox Lake a vital community in which to work and reside.
