Overgrown Weeds and Grass with Recent Rains
Citizens are encouraged to keep Odessa safe and clean by keeping weeds and other overgrown vegetation cut down that are more than twelve (12’) inches tall.
Overgrown vegetation creates a health and safety hazard. Tall weeds and grass are not only a fire hazard, but they are also ideal breeding grounds for mosquitos. Properties with unkept landscaping bring negative attention to investors and visitors. Trespassers are attracted to properties with neglected appearances because they appear to be abandoned.
Home and business owners are responsible for keeping weeds and vegetation cut down and cleared off their property, which includes all areas between the front curb to the middle of the alley, or the back property line if there is no alley.
For more information regarding overgrown vegetation please contact Code Enforcement at 432 335-4680.
