Mosquito / Grass
Lockport Township implemented a mosquito control program many years ago. The township has a contract with “Clarke Environmental” to provide frequent scheduled applications of safe and effective mosquito control for the comfort and health of our residents. Last year’s outbreak of the west nile virus prompted our elected officials to authorize Clarke Environmental to provide additional applications as a precaution. We will again be proactive in controlling the mosquito population in Lockport Township.
To obtain information regarding the mosqito control application such as the dates of the applications or to report excess mosquito sitings please contact the Clarke Mosquito hotline toll free at (800)942-2555. To learn more about our Mosquito Control program please view the following video on youtube.
Grass / Weed Control
Lockport Township Highway Department provides a weed control program that conforms to the Illinois Noxious Weed Law. This law states that thistles and other noxious weeds growing on property in Lockport Township are a general nuisance. This includes grass, which is not allowed to grow higher than 10 inches. Once the township receives a complaint of high grass and weeds, the law states that property owner be notified in writing of the complaint, and be given ten (10) days in which to bring the property into compliance. If after this time the property has not been brought into compliance, the Township will make arrangements for the property to be cut and the owner will be billed for the cost.
Complaints regarding high weeds and grass in unincorporated Lockport Township may be directed to the Highway Department at (815) 726-6056.
