Public Notice: Grass, Vines, Weeds & Brush




The City of Fayette would like to remind residents in Fayette of the Fayette City Code regarding grass, weeds, vines and brush. Fayette City Code Chapter 52 requires owners of residential and commercial property to cut their grass, weeds, vines and brush when it exceeds approximately eight inches in height or which are obnoxious or unsightly. For the first violation of this chapter in each calendar year on a parcel of property, the City of Fayette shall notify the property owner by certified U.S. mail, return receipt requested, or served by personal service of a sworn Law Enforcement Official that a condition that violates the terms of Chapter 52 exists and shall notify the property owner of the actions that must be performed to correct the condition within five days from the date that the notice is received. For subsequent violations on the same parcel of property owned by the same person in the same calendar year a written notice will not be sent. If the property owner fails to maintain the property as required under Chapter 52 after notice was given, the City of Fayette shall order the work to be done by city employees or by a contractor. The total cost of the expense of the work done, including any administrative fees, shall be paid by the property owner. For more information, view Fayette City Code Chapter 52 at Fayette City Hall.
