A noon chicken lunch at Softails on that day is included with each ticket purchased. Tickets are available at Softails and at the Village Clerk’s Office.

Weather permitting, mosquito spraying will be done at dusk on Tuesday & Thursday evenings as needed. Due to the quiet operation of the Village’s new machine, residents may not be aware when crews are spraying.
Grass Clippings on Streets
Residents are to refrain from blowing grass clippings onto Village streets as they can create problems with our sewer system. Fresh clippings are also a safety hazard to bicycle and motorcycle riders by creating a slippery surface on the pavement. Violators may be issued an Administration Ticket by the Police Department.
Recyclables – Empty. Clean. Dry.
Republic Municipal Services Manager Jim Pozzi recently addressed the Ladd Village Board on the importance of educating residents on the proper way to recycle. Please refer to the information below on WHAT and HOW to recycle. Your cooperation will be appreciated.

Failure to purchase an annual tag or allowing your dog to run at-large may result in a $25 administrative ticket. Please be a responsible owner and clean up after your pet.
Sewer Backup Reporting
The Village of Ladd is in the process of implementing a CMOM (Capacity, Management, Operations, and Maintenance) Plan for the Sanitary Sewer Collection System. In order to improve the ability to identify where basement backups and overflows occur, a system of record keeping will be implemented. For each complaint or notification received by the Village concerning a sanitary sewer overflow or a basement backup with the potential of being caused by issues with the Village’s collection system, a report will be generated. A form has been created for the purpose of keeping these records. Residents are encouraged to print, complete and submit the form to the Village Clerk’s office when they experience a sewer backup event. Forms are also available in the Village Clerk’s office. For more information, contact Superintendent Doug Englehaupt @ (815) 894-2806.
