City sends notices to property owners with high grass

TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - The official notice was sent Wednesday warning people who own lots with high grass in the city of Toledo, that they have 72 hours to take care of it.

In extreme cases, the city under emergency powers does have the ability to go onto properties and cut grass. If the property owners fail to cut their grass, the city will do it for them.

The special notice was sent to remind owners of their responsibilities to maintain properties. They are required to keep their grass cut, not to exceed eight inches, plus keep weeds under control.

If property owners do not address the problem, the city will send crews starting next week and charge the owners for the services through assessments. The move was approved through City Council Tuesday to adopt a zero tolerance policy on the issue of tall grass.

A Toledo resident said the effort will improve the conditions of neighborhoods and help those who do maintain their yards.

"I think it's fair, because, I mean, because people should be able to get outside and mow their grass and weed eat. If they can't do that, I mean, at least it's keeping the neighborhood looking clean," said Pablo Losoya, an east Toledo resident.

City officials are tired of receiving complaints about the problems. A second legal notice will be published next week.
