Leaf Collection

Curb leaf collection EVERY MONDAY from Sept. 1st until 1st Monday of Nov., after that date all leaves must be bagged.




Residents are reminded that blowing grass clippings into the street causes problems within the storm drains.  These problems can be costly which in turn, those costs are passed onto you. . . .  the homeowner.  PLEASE blow grass clippings in towards your property and not towards the street.  It also looks much nicer by your property. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Planting trees and shrubs

Spring and Fall are popular seasons to add/replace trees & shrubs to your property.  Village residents are reminded that any new plantings are required to be at least TEN feet from any adjacent village property.  This includes the curb at the street.  Any tree plantings need to be at least TEN feet from the curb.

To ensure a properly placed tree, please stop by the village office and inquire about the ordinances in regards to tree placement and varieties recommended for our community.  It's always a good idea to be informed. 

THANK YOU for your cooperation.  



Length of Lawns, Grasses, & Weeds

This is a general notice to inform all residents that the village will be enforcing Ordinance Section 8-1-6 – Regulating of Length of Lawn, Grasses & Weeds.

The Village Board has received several complaints about numerous properties around the Village that have tall grasses and weeds (including Canadian thistles) that have been allowed to accumulate & re-pollinate on several lots around the village limits.

In an effort to clean up the appearance of our village to potential new residents & businesses the Village Board will be fully enforcing this ordinance. In Section 8-1-6 the Village Board finds that lawns, grasses and noxious weeds on lots or parcels of land, within the Village of Livingston which exceeds eight (8) inches in length adversely affect the public health and safety of the public in that they tend to emit pollen and other discomforting bits of plants, constitute a fire hazard and a safety hazard in that debris can be hidden in the grass, which interferes with the public convenience and adversely affects property values of other land within the Village.

If you know that you are in violation of the above mention ordinance please be aware that this is to be considered your informal notice that you are in violation of the village Ordinance Section 8-1-6. The Village Board will allow all current violators 30 days from receipt of this notice to get their tall grasses and/or weeds cut.

In cases where the owner, occupant or person in charge of the property fails to cut his lawn, grass or weeds as set forth in Ordinance, then, and in that event, the Village will elect to cut said lawn, grass or weeds from the subject’s property and shall charge the expenses of doing so at a rate of Fifty Dollars per hour ($50.00) with a minimum charge of $50.00. Property owners will be billed. If statement is not paid within 30 days the Village Clerk-Treasurer shall enter the charges on the tax roll as a special tax against the said lot or parcel of land.

If you have any questions about this policy, please call the Village of Livingston at (608) 943-6800.

President: Tom Brown,

Trustees: Kim Loeffelolz, Deb France, Ron Haas, Rosemary Gluege, Ryan Walter, Kyle Richards


There's a new Sheriff 
in town!  

The village Board has signed a contract with officials from the Grant co. Sheriff's office to patrol the village of Livingston for a determined number of hours each week. This officer will patrol Livingston in order to keep residents safe and to enforce village ordinances. When the officer is not patrolling Livingston, they are patrolling and keeping the public safe throughout Grant County.

If you have a complaint or concern????

Residents can call the Village office (943-6800) or sewer plant (943-6195) with
a complaint or concern.  The village clerk will
in turn, inform the officer of the complaint.

Be prepared to give your name and phone number where you can be reached in the event the officer needs to contact you for more information. Residents will not be able to call the officer directly with a complaint. It will be handled through the village office or by calling the Grant County non-emergency phone number at 608-723-2157. 
In the case of an emergency, residents should always call 911.

Pet Owners

Some of us within the Village, have the love of animals and own one or more of these furry friends.  It is the responsibility of the pet owner . . . . 

  • Provide proper care for their animals,
  • Obtain a license for the animal (s) at the Village Office,
  • Keep pets confined to yard or pen. 
  • When walking your pet, pick up any waste, and your dog should be leashed at all times
  • Control/silence obsessive barking. 

Keep in mind, your neighbor might not share your enthusiasm when it comes to pets, respect their rights, as they are respecting yours by accepting your animals in the neighborhood.
