From April 1 to September 30,
residents may park their boats and
recreational trailers in their own
driveways. This does not
include work trailers.
This is a privilege the city has
extended beyond the code and can be
revoked at any time. We appreciate
your cooperation. Happy boating
and camping season!
A new Splashpad is currently under construction in the Maize City Park and is scheduled
to open this summer for a fun, wet way for kids to keep cool.
Citizens of Maize are responsible for mowing all easements, including ditches,
alleys, and/or any right-of-way adjacent to their property.
It is also the homeowner's responsibility to trim tree limbs
in these areas. Additionally, citizens are responsible
for cleaning clogged culverts which have a tendency to cause
occasional flooding problems in and around neighborhoods.
From the City Administrator - March, 2016:
With the support of the City Council and a positive
attitude of employees, a cohesive team is in place to serve
our community. There are always challenges and obstacles to
confront, however, the Maize employee team believes in
changing such encounters into opportunities and positive
conduits to get the job done.
Thank you for being a part of the Maize family!
