Common Code Violations
Abandoned & Junked Vehicles
Junked vehicles visible from a public place or public right-of-way are detrimental to the safety and welfare of the general public, tend to reduce the value of private property, invite vandalism and harm the economic welfare of the City.
High Grass & Weeds
High grass and weeds can become a fire hazard as well as a breeding place for mosquitoes and rodents. Consequently, grass or weeds higher than 10 inches are not in compliance with the City ordinance. Upon proper notification, property owners will have 7 days to remove the high grass and weeds. If the problem is not resolved after allowed time period for abatement has expired, legal action could be taken in Municipal Court.
