High Grass and Weeds  

Grass and weeds exceeding 12 inches in height is a violation.  Property owners are responsible for keeping their lawns mowed to the roadway.


Junked Vehicles

A junked vehicle is defined as vehicle that is self-propelled and does not have lawfully attached to it:
  • An unexpired license plate; and
  • A valid motor vehicle inspection certificate; and is
  • Wrecked, dismantled or partially dismantled or discarded; or

Unclean Premises

Properties shall be kept free of unsightly accumulation of garbage and/or junk, which is likely to become unsanitary, offensive or likely to create disease.


Illegal Dumping

Dumping of tires, trash and other such debris is a great concern for all our communities and neighborhoods.  Dispose of tires and trash in a lawful manner.


Stagnant Water

Stagnant pool water can pose serious health risks.  Stagnant swimming pool water should be drained into the sanitary sewer system, not the storm drains.  Be sure to remove standing water from your property to help avoid mosquito infestation and other health concerns.
