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 ten (10) 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.
Any type of construction, including sheds, fences, roofs, or interior renovations where plumbing lines, electrical, drywall or HVAC work is being done requires a building permit in most cases. If there is a question regarding permits, contact Community Development at 352-465-8500.
