High Grass

Watch the "Tall Grass" edition of Know the Code

A recent ordinance change now requires a violator to comply to a violation of high grass in 7 days, rather than 10 days.

Overgrown grass, weeds, shrubs, trees and vegetation are a nuisance and health hazard. Yard maintenance is the responsibility of every property owner and tenant and includes the maintenance of any right of way abutting the property.

  • Grass must be cut at 12 inches or less.
  • All trees and shrubs in the right of way must be trimmed 12 feet from the ground so that they do not obstruct the vision or travel of motorists and people.
  • All vegetation and tree limbs must be removed and disposed of property.
