Overgrown Weeds & Fire Hazards

To help minimize the risk of wildfire, the City of Grants Pass has an ordinance regarding properties with overgrown weeds and brush. Municipal Code Title 5 - Nuisances and Offenses, sub-section 5.12.60 Weeds and Noxious Growth states:

"No owner or person in charge of property may permit weeds or other noxious vegetation to grow upon his property. It is the duty of an owner or person in charge of property to cut down or to destroy weeds or other noxious vegetation from becoming unsightly, or from becoming a fire hazard, or from maturing or going to seed."

Property owners or the person in charge can receive a citation with a fine of $295 to a maximum of $500 if they do not take care of their property.
