Paw Paw is requesting the help of all its residents to help make Paw Paw beautiful. We are asking that residents please maintain their properties by mowing, weeding, and keeping property clear of debris.
This means not using front yards as driveways or driveways as storage units. We would like people who are visiting our town to know that we are a community that takes PRIDE in their town.
We are also asking to PLEASE remove any junk motor vehicles on your property or parked on the street. A vehicle is considered a junk motor vehicle if it is disabled, does not have a current sticker, this includes trailers, or a vehicle parked for more than ten (10) days.
