MAYOR ASKS FOR ASSISTANCE FROM COMMUNITY


On Saturday, August 17 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. in the Charles Johnson Building at 8726 SE 15th, Mayor Dukes is hosting a meeting of faith-based organizations and civic groups who may be interested in helping those in our community. It could be mowing a yard or repairing a fence or painting the exterior of a home for an elderly or disabled resident.

Mayor Dukes is asking groups to come together with other organizations to assist these residents who will be vetted by Neighborhood Services. The various groups would assist on a rotational basis. If you or your group would be willing to assist, or would just like to learn more, please join us on August 17 for this informational meeting.

Yard with tall grass

TALL GRASS AND WEED ORDINANCES PROTECT HEALTH AND SAFETY


Did you know that regularly mowing your lawn not only keeps the community attractive, it helps keep pests away? Overgrown lawns can attract rodents and snakes. Some studies have even shown that there is less crime in neighborhoods with well-maintained properties.

Grass and weeds need to be kept shorter than 12 inches in height to avoid violation of the City's ordinance. If Code Enforcement finds that a violation exists, they send a written notice and the homeowner then has ten days to address the issue or incur the administrative costs and the cost of hiring a contractor to bring the property into compliance.

Health ordinances protect our community by prohibiting items from being kept outside that are not intended for outside storage, such as furniture, tree limbs on the ground, household appliances, lumber and boards. These can attract mosquitoes and other pests. We offer residents options for disposal of these such as bulk trash pick-up or disposal at the Transfer Station. For more information you can call the Public Works Department at 739-1066.

If you have questions about our health and safety ordinances, you can contact Code Enforcement at 739-1005.
