The City will begin enforcing violations of its tall grass ordinance as the weather becomes warmer. Overgrown grass is not only an eyesore, but can provide a home for outdoor rodents like rats, which can cause health problems on not only the property in question, but the entire neighborhood.
Residents must maintenance their lawn to avoid these problems. In most cases, residents with grass 8 inches or taller will first be given a warning notice and time to correct the problem. If the grass is not cut within the designated time on the notice, a ticket will be issued and the City’s contractor will cut the grass. The property owner will be responsible for the fees and associated penalties.

Those unable to tend to their own lawns should make other arrangements including the option of hiring a landscaping company to perform the service for them. All properties in Taylor are subject to enforcement.
