Please help the City address ordinance violations, such as illegal burning, by contacting the Farmer City Police Department at (309) 928-2111. They will address these violations based on personal observation and citizen complaints. In the case of leaf burning, with the wind and depending on the size of the fire, it can be nearly impossible to locate individual fires amongst 1,100 residences.
In these cases, the person responsible may be unaware of the change in days allowed, for example. The Police Department may issue warnings in those instances. If it is determined the person has been warned previously or if it is determined that it is a deliberate act to disregard the days, a citation will be issued.
The Police Department will continue to identify ordinance violations such as nuisance properties, excessive weeds and abandoned vehicles, to name a few. We seek the community’s cooperation in addressing these matters. Please call the non-emergency number to report violations; we will not release your name. Again, that number is (309) 928-2111. Thank you for helping us keep Farmer City safe and clean!
