High Grass & Weeds

Grass

Spring has sprung and so has the grass. Please be a good neighbor and mow your lawn regularly. When a lawn is neglected, it reflects negatively on the neighborhood and can become a health and safety hazard. Overgrown grass and weeds attract insects and rodents and can provide fuel for fires during dry months.


Grass and weeds growing to a greater height than 10 inches, or growing in rank profusion including along, upon or across the sidewalk or street is a code violation. When a violation is observed, the property owner is contacted and given seven days to abate the violation. If the property owner fails to mow the grass, citations may be issued, or the city's contract mower will mow the property and such charges will be assessed to the property owner, in addition to a $123 administration fee. Failure to pay all costs incurred for the mowing service within 30 days results in a lien being filed against the property.
