City ordinance requires property owners to cut grass and weeds. Property owners who allow grass and weeds to exceed one foot in height are subject to an immediate citation.  In addition, a notice will be issued to cut the grass/weeds within five days. If the property owner fails to comply with the notice the City will have the property mowed and bill the owner.  The current minimum charge for mowing is about $102 per lot, but the actual charge could be more depending on the amount of work involved. The City prefers not to be in the landscaping business and would much rather see property owners maintain their properties as required.

Residents can call the Inspections Department at (715) 261-6780 to report uncut weeds or grass.
