GENESEO — Re-familiarize yourself with the Village Codes or you could be forced to pay a fine.
The Village of Geneseo’s codes warrant attention and the lack of knowledge isn’t viable excuse.
“This is not glamorous but it does include some things most of us don’t pay much attention to until it is a problem,” said Mayor Margaret Duff, “[The Codes] really are about being a respectful neighbor.”
Mayor Duff reached out to the Genesee Sun detailing some of the codes in the Village.
The noise ordinance has the hours 11pm-7am explicitly stated, however, keep your neighbors in mind before cranking the volume until the last minute.
Open burning and bonfires are banned in the Village. Therefore, all fire pits must be enclosed or have a cover.
Remind your visitors, overnight parking in the Village, from 2am-7am, is prohibited, due to local law. In addition, there can be no vehicles parked on front lawns or in front of sidewalks and driveways.
Smoking is illegal on all Village property, including the parks. Along with this, littering of any kind is prohibited in these spaces.
Mayor Duff advises that it is crucial to avoid leaving piles of garbage, furniture, and other large items on the exterior of your property. These can easily attract unwanted wild animals.
