The City has a history and reputation of well-kept properties and the property values and the general welfare of this community are founded, in part upon the appearance and maintenance of property.
An overgrown lawn can be a nuisance, in fact, an eyesore. Overgrown vegetation is a breeding ground that is likely to attract rodents, vermin or pests and may cause hazardous conditions.
As a property owner or occupant, it can also cost you.
Property owners fail to maintain their lawns and yards may be issued an administrative citation and be assessed municipal fines.
The fines can range, depending on the size of the property and the scope of the problem, from $200- $1000.
The purpose of enforcement is to ensure that all properties are well maintained, which helps the overall quality of life. So let’s be a good Neighbor and keep our lawns in great condition.
