Summer is well on its way and this year it looks like we are going to have time to do all that yard landscaping and cleanup while we stay close to home.
As you get your lawnmower and weed trimmer tuned up for the ritual first mow of the season, The Hominy Police Dept. would like to remind you of the following City Ordinances:
