Complete the Survey

The Moravia City Council encourages all residents to complete the income survey that was included with the water bills in October. Depending on the results of the survey, the City could be eligible for grants for the required sewer lagoon upgrade. This could result in huge savings for all residents in the form of lower utility bills. Surveys may be mailed to the City at PO Box 246 or put in the drop box located at City Hall. Thank you!

COUNCIL MEETINGS

Due to social distancing requirements, the Moravia City Council meetings will be held in the community building until further notice.

DISINFECTING WIPES ARE NOT FLUSHABLE

With the increased use of disinfecting wipes with the Corona virus pandemic, please remember these wipes are NOT flushable, even though they are marketed as “flushable.”  DO NOT FLUSH paper towels, Kleenex, wipes, or rags down the toilet.  Residents should know that these wipes will plug the lift pumps and fill the lagoons even faster with sludge, costing money to remove and reducing the lagoon’s treatment capacity, which will cause your sewer bill to go up faster than it would need to.  Thank you for your cooperation!

CITY HALL CLOSED TO PUBLIC UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

NOTICE – MOWING REQUIRED

Per Chapter 52 of the Moravia Code of Ordinances, any property within the City of Moravia, including ditches, whether vacated or non-vacated, is required to be mowed by the 15th day of the month in May, June, July, August, September, and October of each year.  Any property, including ditches, which is not mowed by these dates may be mowed by the City, and a charge of $75 per hour for such mowing plus a surcharge of $100 will be charged to the property owner.  Grass, weeds, or brush shall be cut, mowed, and maintained so as not to exceed six inches.  Any property owners who fail to mow their properties, including ditches, thus allowing the same to be mowed by the City, and who do not provide payment for the mowing as required, will be assessed by the City for such costs, which will be collected in the same manner as general property taxes.  Publication of this serves as notice to property owners and the City will be authorized to respond to violations without additional written notice being given.
