Upon receipt of a complaint of overgrown grass or weeds a letter is sent to the property owner informing them of a weeds complaint on the property. The property owner is given seven (7) days to correct the violation. At the time of the letter, an inspection is scheduled for the eighth (8th) day at which time a Code Enforcement Officer will inspect the property for a weeds violation. If the property is found to be in compliance, the case is closed. If the violation still exists, a citation is issued, then a work order is requested and a City contractor will mow the property. The fine amount and the mowing fee will then be levied against the property.
