Frequently Asked Questions

Every year questions arise regarding care of sidewalks--believe it or not during both summer and winter timeframes.  Here are some brief guidelines to assist you.

Owners or occupants of an abutting lot and land in the Village shall keep the sidewalk in front of and along their respective lot in good repair and free of nuisance from snow, mud,  or other filth.  Owners or occupants shall need to remove all snow, ice, and dirt from the sidewalks along or in front of their respective property within twelve hours after any snowfall or within two (2) hours after being notified by the Village to remedy a situation.  

 Violations are considered a minor misdemeanor.  However it is more important we check on our neighbors health and well being and assist wherever possible to keep our Village in good repair.

1.) Make sure zoning is correct for the type of business
2.) Plan approval from The Village
3.) Apply for variances if needed
4.) Obtain a building permit from The Village.  Download and fill out this Building Zoning Permit Application
5.) Contact Wood County Building Inspector in Bowling Green Ohio to obtain required permits and plan approval.

The McComb Brush Pick-Up Program is for weather related and trimmed brush from a McComb resident’s property only.

 Brush from a contracted tree removal/trimming project on a resident’s property will be the responsibility of the property owner.  Please include removal and clean up in your contract. It is unfair to ask the tax payers of the Village of McComb to cover this cost.

Please remember the village will only pick up piles that measure a maximum of 6x6 feet, larger piles should be referred to a contractor.

This is a curbside pickup of brush up to 6” in diameter.

 Piles must be neatly stacked with cut ends curb side, with no lawn waste, poison ivy, thorns, or trash and placed out by 7:00 a.m. on Mondays.

If inclement weather on a Monday, brush will be picked up the following day.

Grass clippings are not considered to be brush and will not be picked up. Residents may take grass clippings to the yard waste facility on Scott Street. Clippings should not be left in plastic bags.
