152.01 MOWING OF PROPERTIES.

Any property within the City, whether vacated or non-vacated, is required to be mowed any time the vegetation reaches a height of more than eight inches by the fifteenth (15th) day of the month in May, June, July, August, September, and October of each year.

152.02 PENALTY.

Any property which is not mowed by the above dates may be mowed by the City or its agents, and a charge of $75.00 per hour (with a minimum of one hour, and any additional time over the first hour billed in half-hour increments), for such mowing, plus a surcharge of $100.00, will be charged to the property owner. Any property owner who fails to mow his or her property, thus allowing the same to be mowed by the City, and who does not provide payment for the mowing as required, will be assessed by the City for such costs, which will be collected in the same manner as general property taxes.

152.03 METHOD OF SERVICE AND BILLING.

Annual publication of this chapter will serve as notice to property owners. Any billings for mowing done by the City are to be sent by regular mail and are payable within 30 days of the billing date.
