Just a few reminders:
According to our neighborhood covenants and by-laws “no trash container (shall) be exposed to any street except within twenty-four (24) hours of curb side collection.” Notice the word exposed. That means that not only should your trash container not be on the street, it should not be visible from the street. Put it in the garage or behind your fence. There is nothing attractive about a trash can!
Who doesn’t love basketball? We all do except when we have to dodge the kids on the street shooting at the basketball goal that hangs over the street. Parents, this is not only a violation of our by-laws, it is a dangerous practice! This comes from Section IA #3 under STREETS, EASEMENTS AND UTILITIES:
“No building structure, or other above or below ground obstruction that will interfere with the purposes aforesaid, shall be placed, erected, installed or permitted upon the easements or right-of-ways as shown.”
Also- Vic Bell from the city of Bixy reminds us: “The City has received numerous calls recently regarding individuals blowing grass clippings into the street. This can potentially cause a problem with storm water drainage. Please remind residents and landscaping contractor personnel that it is a violation of City Code to blow or sweep grass clippings, leaves, etc., onto streets or sidewalks.”
Bixby City Code 7-1-6: UNLAWFUL DEPOSIT OF REFUSE:
It is unlawful for any person to deposit, throw or sweep into or upon a street, alley, parking or sidewalk of the city any paper, rubbish, grass, weeds, tree trimmings, dirt, trash, crates, boxes, filth, refuse, garbage, ashes, rubbish, animal or vegetable matter, or any refuse of any kind. (Code 22-7).

One more thing – it is just common courtesy to clean up after your dog when you go for walks in the neighborhood. Oh, to have the regularity of a dog! Just remember, if your dog poops it, you scoop it! Your neighbors will all be very grateful.
