A vacant lot in my neighborhood becomes overgrown with tall weeds. Is there a way to make the owner mow the lot?
City ordinance makes it illegal to permit grass or weeds to grow more than twelve (12) inches tall, excluding seed pods. (This does not apply to land on which the natural vegetation has not been removed.) Individuals should contact the Code Enforcement division and provide information on the property. An officer will inspect the property and contact the owner.

The owner is given twenty (20) days, upon receipt of notice, to have the property mowed. However, if the owner cannot be located or does not mow the property, a pre-qualified contractor will mow or clean the property at a predetermined cost. The City will invoice the owner of record for the work done, plus administrative costs, and a lien will be placed on the property.
