Don’t Make Me Call the Lawn Police!

With a swing to warmer weather, the attention of the City’s Property Maintenance staff will shift to nuisance vegetation. City ordinance requires that lawns be kept shorter than 8 inches in height and noxious weeds be controlled.

When the City receives a complaint about a parcel of land that is being neglected, the City investigates the complaint with a site visit. If the complaint is valid, the property owner is sent a courtesy letter asking that the nuisance be corrected. Generally, property owners are given seven days to correct the problem. Only one courtesy letter is sent on a property per year.

The City then reinspects the property on or after the due date. If the problem has not been corrected, a City Code Enforcement Officer issues a $100 citation for the violation. In addition, the City has contracted with lawn mowing and weed spraying services who correct the violation. The property owner is billed for the work, and if the bill is left unpaid, the cost is assessed against the property.

Residents are encouraged to report potential nuisance vegetation violations by calling 978-6900 during normal business hours, or leave a voice message after hours or on weekends. Potential violations also can be reported online at
