Email News Alerts

Want to put up a fence in the city of Verndale? You'll need to verify where the property line is before you pound that first nail.

Disputes between neighbors have been brought before the city council in recent months, and an ordinance was drafted to deal with fences.


The main feature of the new ordinance is a required setback of at least two feet from the property line. The mowing and maintenance of those two feet would still be the responsibility of the owner.
