Weld Wire Installation

Weld wire may be placed on the outside of fence rails, if the fence is along a common lot line with an adjacent lot, and the owner of the adjacent lot does not object to the weld wire on his/her side of the fence rails.

Electric Fencing
No electric fencing shall be permitted in residential areas unless buried.

Protective Fencing/Reflective Posts

– Allowed only November 15 – April 15; reflector posts must be removed after April 15.
– Must be well maintained.
