With the rain and sunshine come weeds! Weeds are a common violation within the city limits and this year’s rainfall has contributed to excessive weed growth. City code requires all weeds and brush exceeding six inches in height to be cut within three inches of the ground. Property owners and lessees are responsible to trim weeds and brush up to the curb line of any street adjoining their property and to the center of any alley adjoining their property.
The Grand Junction Police Department’s Code Compliance Officers will be out in the community to enforce the city weed abatement program which runs from May 1 through October 31. To report a weed violation on private property, call the weeds desk line at 970-244-1583.
