City will charge minimum $130 to mow unkept yards
With the recent welcome rains the City of Jefferson staff reminds residents to keep their grass mowed.
Ordinance Number 532 requires that grass, weeds or brush not grow to a height greater than 8 inches.
In the event residents fail to abate or cause to be abated the above nuisance as directed, the City will take such steps as are necessary to abate or cause to be abated the nuisance and the costs will be assessed against the property as provided by law. The cost of the City mowing the premises will be billed at the rate of $130 per hour with a one hour minimum.
Residents will be sent an initial notice advising of any violations which will serve as notice for the entire year. If future violations occur the City may take steps to abate the nuisance and assess costs without further notice.
Residents are also reminded not to blow their grass clippings onto the city streets or other property owners property.
Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
