Help keep your neighborhood looking beautiful by mowing your lawn regularly. Grass must be kept mowed below 7" for all residential, developed, subdivided and landscaped areas of the Township, including business districts. The 7" height requirement includes fence lines, garden edge lines and building perimeters. A well kept lawn adds beauty and curb appeal to your property and contributes to a clean and sanitary environment.

Beginning on Memorial Day each year, the Township will mow tall grass on private property and invoice the property owner for the cost of the work plus a $50 administrative fee. Once a property is mowed under enforcement, it remains on a watch list until someone else takes responsibility to maintain it.

Noxious weeds include Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense), dodders (any species of Cuscuta), mustards (charlock, black mustard and Indian mustard, species of Brassica or Sinapis), wild carrot (Daucus carota), bindweed (Convolvulus arvensis), perennial sowthistle (Sonchus arvensis), hoary alyssum (Berteroa incana), ragweed (Ambrosia elatior l.), poison ivy (Rhus toxicodendron), poison sumac (toxicodendron vernix), oxeye daisies, goldenrod or other plant which, in the opinion of the Township Board of Trustees, is recognized as deleterious to health, safety or public welfare and recognized as a common nuisance. Prevention and removal of noxious weeds is the responsibility of the owner, agent, or occupant of the land in question.
