The Village Hall will be closed and Public Works Department will not be working on Friday, April 15, 2022 in observance of Good Friday.
Please make sure the Village Hall
has current contact information.
Do you realize how difficult it might be for first responders to locate you if your house numbers are not visible from the street?
It is the duty of the homeowner or occupant of every house, apartment building or business in the Village to have placed in a location visible from the street figures at least three inches (3″) showing the number of the property. Violations of this may result in an ordinance violation citation.
The Village of Warrensburg Spring Rummage Sale will be on Friday, April 22 and Saturday, April 23. Sign-up at the Barclay Public Library. There is a $3 fee to help cover the cost of advertising.
The Village of Warrensburg along with Illini Township will be having their Spring Clean-Up/Recycle Day on Saturday, May 14. Items such as appliances, furniture, dried paint cans, etc. can be dropped off at the Illini Township lot (177 S Washington) from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm. Like last year, you will be able to enter through one gate and exit the other, so please watch those directing the traffic flow. This is a great time to clear your home or property of those items which are no longer useful to you!!
This year, there will also be a site to drop off electronic items for recycling, such as computers, TVs, video games, etc. This will be handled by BLH Computers and they will set up at Promise Land Ministries (168 E Main). Their collection times are from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Again, we will be directing traffic in one drive opening and out the other, so please watch the traffic flow. There may be a small fee or donation for this service. We will keep you updated on that information.
Mayor Riley would like to be able to organize a time to go around the village and pick-up any litter such as papers, cups, bottles, etc. in an attempt to improve the Village appearance. Anyone interested in assisting with this project, feel free to contact the Village Hall or Mayor Riley.
Were you aware that it is a violation of Village Code to toss or leave debris on streets, alleys, sidewalks or public places within the Village? Fines for this violation start at $150.00.
Were you aware that there is an annual registration fee for your Golf Cart or Neighborhood Vehicle? If you have already registered your vehicle, you will shortly be receiving a notification for renewal. If you have not registered your golf cart, you are in violation of Village Code and need to get it registered or risk receiving an ordinance violation citation. It’s easy to register your vehicle. Just stop by the Village Hall and request a form and once completed, Chief Wheeler will inspect the vehicle and issue you a tag. The annual fee for registration at this time is $25.00.
Did you realize that it is unlawful for any person to own, keep or harbor a dog or cat without first having obtained a license/tag to do so? This is a separate registration from the Macon County vaccination registration. Applications for animal registrations can be obtained at the Village Hall or on this website. There is a one-time fee of $5.00 for the tag and that does need to be picked up at the Village Hall along with payment of the fee. (If registered online, you still need to stop by the Village Hall to pay the fee and pick up the tag) Owners of animals who are not registered are subject to an ordinance violation citation.
Per Village Code, it is unlawful for the owner or keeper of any dog or cat to permit them to run at large on any public street, alley, public place or unenclosed place within the village at any time. In other words, if outside of the house or fence, they need to be on a leash. If they are caught running at large, their owner is subject to an ordinance violation citation.
It is also unlawful to permit them to defecate on any public street, alley, public place or unenclosed place within the Village other than the private premises of the owner. Said acts shall not be construed to be unlawful, if immediately upon occurrence, the owner removes the defecation in a bag, sack or other sealable container to the owner’s premises or deposits the same in a proper trash receptacle.
