High Grass and Weeds
Not only are high grass and weeds unsightly, but they pose a fire hazard, block visibility for drivers, harbor rodents and snakes and contribute to pests like mosquitoes and chiggers.
City code requires property owners to keep grass and weeds in their yards and vacant lots under 12 inches. Please see the Code here.
If your grass is taller than 12 inches, you will receive a notice (once per year) and will have 10 days to mow it. If you don't, a city contractor will do the job for you and pass the cost of service onto the property owner. Depending on the size of the lot, the bill can be anywhere from $125 (for smaller lots) and up. Failure to pay for mowing may result in a lien being placed against the property.
