Start with code enforcement. Make people clean up their property! Looks like Sauk Village! Fine them, take them to court. Shape up or ship out!

also, maybe pay special attention to rental properties. most people who live in or own those do not have an investment in the town therefore do not care.

The problem with fines is that you cannot force them to pay, cannot garnish wages... All a government can do is post a levy against the property so when/if they ever sell the house then the village gets part of the proceeds, big deal. Someone living in the house now could care less about what happens when they sell. Villages are hamstrung by state and federal laws. It's to protect people against the evil government, which is usually something everyone on this topix board is screaming about because everyone thinks government is pure evil. That's why these overly protective laws are passed. Same thing with rentals, all you can do is assess penalties, they don't get paid, record a levy, nothing visible happens.

Can't turn off someone's water because they don't cut their lawn. Again, it's the state protecting people against the big bad government. Can't deprive them of life-giving water because of weeds in their yard; because they don't pay their bill, yes, but you can't use the threat of withholding water to force citizens to "behave"
