[ARCHIVED] Grass and Weed Maintenance
For Immediate Release: 05/29/2020

With abundant moisture and warmer temperatures, how quickly grass and weeds can grow is amazing. Green grass and leafy trees are a welcome change from the stark, colder days of winter.
City code requires trimming of grasses and weeds as follows before they reach a height of eight (8) inches. Any accumulation of dead weeds or grass that are exposed to public view, on any non-farm property also is considered a nuisance. This provision shall not apply to prairies, wetlands, or similar areas of naturalized perennial vegetation which are certified by an Enforcement Officer to not constitute a nuisance.
Please remember to keep grass and weeds cut to avoid a nuisance citation. Please keep grass clippings out of the street to keep them out of the storm sewer.
The City will continue to be Storm Lake Proud by working to mow public open spaces as well as park areas. We encourage the public’s cooperation to maintain private properties in the community.
Being Storm Lake Proud is not one day, one week, one month, or one event. Being Storm Lake Proud is a magnificent lifestyle!
