Maintenance of Tall Grass & Weeds

Grass and weeds over eight inches in height are a nuisance and are required to be removed by City Code. This does not apply to land zoned as Forestry or Agriculture as long as a 20-foot perimeter adjacent to any right-of-way is mowed and maintained. Owners and tenants are required to keep adjoining public right-of-way mowed.

Two ordinance violations, during the same growth season, will result in a citation issued to all owners and occupants of the property. Each subsequent posting will result in a citation during the balance of the growth season.

If the tall grass and weeds have not been mowed within seven days of the posting, the City's mowing contractor will mow the property at the owner's expense.
