Now that we have finally hit the summer months the Village would like to remind residents of the following:

1. NO ATV's are allowed on Village streets.
In order to operate a golf cart or UTV on public roads, the driver MUST have a valid driver's license.
No minors are allowed to operate a golf cart or UTV.

2. Please do not leave grass clippings on the road.
The grass clippings clog the sewer system.

3. Lawns cannot be over 8 inches without violating the Nuisance Ordinance.
Please maintain your properties.

Thank you and have a great Summer!

It has come to the attention of the Village of Paw Paw that someone has been damaging the plants and area around the Village band shelter.

The Paw Paw Garden Club spends a lot of time and resources maintaining those. The blatant disregard and vandalism is disappointing to say the least.

Anyone caught damaging/vandalizing this area or any other Village property, will be prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed by law.
