Property Maintenance
Tall Grass / Weeds
The City has an active nuisance cut program. Any property where grass or weeds have been allowed to grow to a height of more than seven inches will be notified with a request to cut the grass or weeds. If the property is not mowed within the requested period then it will be cut by the City’s Contractor and the property owner will be billed. (Chapter 82, Article IV)
Snow / Ice Removal
Snow / ice removal is the responsibility of the property owner. This includes the snow / ice in driveways and sidewalks on your property. If snowfall ends during the daylight hours, snow must be cleared from the sidewalks within 12 hours. If snowfall ends during the night, snow must be cleared from the sidewalks by 6:00 pm of the following day. (Chapter 62, Article II, Division 3, Sec. 62-125 & 126)
