With a better-than-average monsoon season, it follows that it would be a green fall, including unwanted weeds.
The code compliance division of the Apache Junction Development Services department reminds you that the city does have an ordinance that requires all weeds over 10 inches to be cut. Under that rule, all property owners and/or occupants are responsible for their half of any alleys at the rear of their properties and all the way to the pavement in the front yard.
While we all enjoy the green, weeds are unsightly and can fuel fire when they dry out. And with temperatures dropping, now is a great time to get out in your yard.
“The city continues to try and beautify the community through the code by cleaning up properties,” said Mayor Chip Wilson. “We hope property owners will help by cutting down the overgrown weeds on their property and adjacent areas next to their property. Please help make Apache Junction a nice-looking place for all of us and our visitors to enjoy.”
Code compliance staff is making great strides in addressing many of the blighting issues found in the city, but the best results come from our citizens taking pride in their properties.
Sometime around the end of October, code compliance will begin notifying owners and/or occupants of weed-related issues. We very much appreciate any attention you can give to your landscaping now.
