It shall be the duty of each owner, possessor or occupier of land, and every person having charge of any land within the City to cut or remove all noxious weeds on or before April 1st of each year.

If weeds are not cut by April 1, 2021 and as often thereafter as necessary, the City may enter upon the land and cause all such weeds to be cut down.

Weed growth on lots adjacent to residential uses may not exceed nine inches.  Weed growth on lots adjacent to non-residential property may not exceed nine inches.  Weed growth in excess of these limits will be cause for the City to enter private land and cause such weeds to be cut down.  All expenses of such cutting, including any and all costs incurred in the removal or relocation of debris, junk or other miscellaneous obstructions which would be necessary or convenient to carrying out the requirements shall be paid by the owner of such land plus an administrative service charge per parcel, per cutting.
