Regulation of Length of Lawn and Grasses
Village Ordinance Section 127-3
Purpose: This section is adopted due to the unique nature of the problems associated with lawns, grasses and noxious weeds being allowed to grow to excessive length in the Village of Theresa
Public Nuisance: The Village of Theresa finds that lawns, grasses and noxious weeds on nonagricultural lots or parcels of land, which exceed six (6) inches in length, adversely affect the public health and safety of the public. For that reason, any nonagricultural lawn, grass or weed on a lot or other parcel of land, which exceed six (6) inches in length, will hereby be considered a public nuisance.
Inspection: The Weed Commissioner or his designee shall inspect or cause to be inspected all premises and places within the Village to determine whether any public nuisance exists.
The Weed Commissioner shall immediately cause a five-day written notice to be served that the Village proposes to have the weeds or lawn cut so as to conform with this section. Only one notice, per year, shall be served upon the owner or occupant.
