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 payments 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. The full ordinance may be viewed at City Hall or on this website. This publication serves as notice to property owners and the City will be authorized to respond to violations without additional written notice being given.

E-MAIL OPTION FOR INVOICES

The City of Moravia is offering the option of water/sewer invoices being e-mailed to residents instead of mailed through the Post Office. If you would like to have your invoice e-mailed each month, send an e-mail to cityofmoravia@iowatelecom.net stating your preference and what e-mail address to send the invoice to.

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!
