The Ordinance Department is constantly monitoring conditions throughout
St. Joseph Charter Township.
We look for compliance
of our International Property Maintenance Code. The property Maintenance Code is aimed at the upkeep and general maintenance
of all properties, houses, and buildings.
Many ordinance issues are handled on a daily basis including, but not
limited to: off street parking, animals running at large, the proper
keeping of animals, appearance of lawn and house exteriors, noise abatement, and nuisances of many varieties.
Please do not hesitate to notify us of anything you feel might be a
violation, as we aim to keep St. Joseph Charter Township a sought
after community on which to live.
Currently, the most common violations are:
Leaving Large Items of Rubbish at the Curbside - Special arrangements should be made with Best Way Disposal by calling Tami at (269) 463-3232.
Parking on the Grass - Parking spaces must be concrete or asphalt.
Tall Grass/Weeds - If you do not mow, the Township has to do it. You will be invoiced.
Barking Dogs/Dogs at Large - If a complain comes in, you will receive a letter. A second complaint may result in a citation.
Soliciting - You can not solicit door to door in St. Joseph Township without first obtaining a permit to do so.
Please note the implementation of the
sign for tall grass/weeds.
Instead of receiving a written notices in the mail, the Township
will now be posting the notice in the yard of the non-compliant properties.
If one of these shows up in your yard, please take the necessary steps
to remedy the problem. In
case of special circumstances, please
call the Ordinance Department and speak with the Ordinance Officer.
