Keeping Down Weeds and Grass

Any person owning or having charge of land within the Village is required to keep their property free and clear from all noxious weeds and grasses of a height of seven (7) inches or more. The Village Zoning Inspector is authorized to give notice to the property owner, lessee, agent, or tenant to remove such weeds/grasses, as provided by ORC 731.51. If this is not done within five (5) days after service of said notice, the Village may cut the weeds/grasses at its own expense, and then certify the cost to the county auditor for assessment on the owner’s property taxes per Section 174.04 in the Weston Basic Code.
