What does the City’s Code have to say about high grass, brush, rubbish, or debris on private property?

Chapter 6 of the City’s Code of Ordinances addresses the cleanliness and sanitation on private premises. It is illegal to permit the accumulation of junk, debris, and/or rubbish upon private property or the public right-of-way, the Department of Public Works is authorized to remove said debris, junk, or rubbish and bill the adjoining property owner(s). Normally, the City’s Division of Code Enforcement will advise property owners of their failure to comply with Section 6 of the Code and the owner/resident will have ten (10) days to abate the nuisance before the City will intervene.
