High Grass and Weeds

High grass and weeds are a concern to a lot of people.  We all want to have nice neighborhoods to raise our families in and unsightly property can be an issue.  According to our City's Code of Ordinances:

Sec. 38-117. - Weeds, rubbish, etc.

(a)
The owner of any developed lot or lots within the city shall keep such lots free from weeds, grass and brush over 12 inches in height, except where such lots contain or are near residential structures in which case such lots shall be kept free from weeds, grass or brush over six inches in height for a distance of at least 100 feet from such structures.

(b)
The owner of any undeveloped lot or lots, or tracts of land within the city shall keep such lots free from weeds, grass and brush over 18 inches in height for a distance of 50 feet from a residential structure or occupied commercial structure, or 25 feet from the property line of the property upon which such residential structure or occupied commercial structure is located, whichever is greater.

(c)
All lots and land within the city developed or undeveloped shall be kept free from rubbish and any and all other objectionable, unsightly or unsanitary matter of whatsoever nature.

(d)
As used in this section, the term "developed lot or lots" shall mean any property within a subdivision or addition to the city that was platted after January 1, 1920, regardless of whether or not such plat of such subdivision or addition is recorded in the real property records of the county.

(Code 1991, § 11-207)
