Keep your yard, vacant lot and land cut to less than 12 inches, as outlined in the city ordinance.

Spring is here and grass is starting to grow quickly. The city’s Code Compliance officials encourage everyone to avoid tall grass and weeds by mowing regularly.

If a Code Compliance officer documents that the grass and weeds on your property are more than 12 inches high, you will receive a one-time certified notice and have 10 days to correct the violation. If you don’t, a city contractor will do the job. The average bill for a residential lot is $250.

To learn more, call Code Compliance at 817-392-1234.
