Codes

Residents and businesses are strongly encouraged to invest in their property and not allow it to fall into disrepair. The City understands that it can be difficult to keep property properly maintained and clean, but we must, however, be considerate of our neighbors and work to enhance our quality of life.

By picking up debris and trash, appropriately maintaining vehicles, mowing grass, tending to weeds and controlling one’s pets, the City of Edgerton can become an even better place to live for all citizens.

    The Code Enforcement/Animal Control Officer is responsible for enforcing City Ordinances. Through a cooperative effort of the City Council and the citizens of Edgerton, we can maintain property values and create a better quality of life within our community.

      If you have any questions or would like additional information regarding property maintenance codes, please view our Property Maintenance Codes brochure.

    Animal Control

    The City of Edgerton requires all dogs and cats to be licensed annually.

    On February 18, 2016, Edgerton City Council approved several updates to the animal ordinances. One of those updates included new prices and structure for annual pet registrations. The new prices are listed below. 

    • Neutered/spayed dog or cat: $5
    • Unneutered/non-spayed dog or cat: $25
    • Seniors (age 60 and over) with neutered/spayed dog or cat: no charge

    Licenses tags are available at the City Office and are good from January 1 to December 31st each year. All animals must be properly registered by March 31, of the following year. Proof of a rabies vaccination, dated within six months, is required for purchase of a license tag. By licensing your pet, the City has a better chance of returning your pet should it be picked up by City staff.

      If you have any questions please contact city staff at 913-893-6231.
