Hydrant Flushing

The Village of Arena will be flushing and testing Fire Hydrants during June 11th-13th. Residents may experience some discoloration of their water.
However, the water will continue to be safe to drink. Residents may want to avoid doing laundry during this time to avoid discoloration of clothing. If you must do laundry, make sure you check the water before you wash the clothes.
Despite the inconvenience of the discolored water, it is necessary to flush fire hydrants to remove any sediment that might have settled in the water mains and also, to insure that the fire hydrants remain in good working condition.
If you have any questions, please call the Arena Public Works at 459-5838. Thank you for your understanding during this process.

Spraying Mosquitos

The Village will be spraying for mosquitos at dusk, weather permitting. Please go in doors and shut windows if you have any issues or concern with pesticides.

8.05.070 Regulation of length of lawn and grasses.

Public Nuisance Declared. The village board finds that lawns, grasses and noxious weeds on lots or parcels of land which exceed eight inches in length adversely affect the public health and safety of the public in that they tend to emit pollen and other discomforting bits of plants, constitute a fire hazard and a safety hazard in that debris can be hidden in the grass, interferes with the public convenience and adversely affects property values of other land within the village. For that reason, any lawn, grass or weed on a lot or other parcel of land which exceeds eight inches in length is hereby declared to be a public nuisance, except for property located in a designated floodplain area and/or wetland area or where the lawn, grass or weed is part of a natural lawn approved pursuant to AMC 8.05.060.
