City of Lubbock planning to crack down on overgrown yards and property

The beneficial rains we have had in the last couple of weeks have really greened up yards, but they have also brought out the weeds. The City of Lubbock is reminding citizens that it is time to start those mowers.

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, our Code Enforcement officers will be focusing their daily inspections on weeds violations:

Uncultivated vegetation over 8 inches high is a violation of the nuisance weed ordinance.

Property owners have to mow from the front curb of their property to the middle of their alley.

The Codes Department sends out notices of violation to property owners listed on the tax records.

Property owners have 7 days to mow their property after they receive a citation.

If a property owner does not mow their property, the Codes Department uses private contractors to mow the property.

If the Codes Department mows your property, you will be charged for the cost of the mowing plus a $150 administration charge.

If that charge goes unpaid, you can have a lien placed on your property.
