The city of Perry issued a statement Tuesday intended to remind Perry residents about the city ordinance governing grass and weeds.
According to Chapter 52 of the Perry City Code, grass, weeds or brush shall be cut, mowed and maintained so as not to exceed the following height restrictions:
- Residential Areas – Not to exceed eight inches (8”)
- Business and Industrial Areas – Not to exceed eight inches (8”)
- Agriculture Areas – Not to exceed fifteen inches (15”)
Grass, weeds and brush that are allowed to grow in excess of the above specified limits will be deemed to be in violation of this ordinance.
Any property within the city of Perry, whether vacated or non-vacated, found to be with grass, weeds or brush over the limits listed above on the first and third Wednesday of the month in the months of May, June, July, August, September and October, will be mowed by the City of Perry and will be charged a fee.
