Tall Grass & Weeds Management

A kind reminder:

Section 110-27 states β€œIt shall be the duty of each owner, possessor or occupier of land, and of every person having charge of any land within the City, to cut or remove and destroy all noxious weeds. Noxious weeds shall be defined as all grasses, annual plants, and vegetation other than trees or shrubs; provided, however, this term shall not include cultivated flowers and gardens. All noxious weeds shall be cut or removed and destroyed on or before May 1 of each year. Thereafter, all noxious weeds shall be cut or removed and destroyed before they reach a height of six (6”) inches on lands adjacent to a residence or a height of eight inches on vacant lands or commercial property and, in any case, as necessary to prevent all noxious weeds from going to seed or otherwise spreading or becoming a detriment to the public health.”

The grass program runs from May 1 through October 31. Failure to comply will result in the City undertaking the cutting and/or clean up, and presenting the property owner with a bill for services. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Code Enforcement at (989) 894-8176 or by email to [email protected].
