Lawn Mowing Requirements: Maintaining Lawns and Weed Control The City of Madrid, in accordance with Ordinance #317 and the Municipal Code of Ordinances, Chapter 50 "Nuisance Abatement", has the authority to require property owners to maintain grass and weed growth to a maximum height of eight inches. This requirement applies to tenants and property owners alike and applies to both private property and public property referred to as "city parking" or" city terracing" maintained by the tenant or property owner. Tenants or property owners who do not maintain their properties as described will be sent a compliance request letter and afforded a five day time period to comply with the requirement. If compliance is not made, the city may abate the nuisance at a rate of $70.00 an hour with a two hour minimum charge or contract the work out to an independent contractor - which ever it prefers. Tenants and property owners will be sent a nuisance abatement letter just once a calendar year but will be obligated to maintain the property throughout the calendar year without future notices. Property maintenance and community beautification requires the efforts of everyone living within the community. If you know of a property that is not being mowed in accordance with these stipulations, please contact City Hall and we will take the steps necessary to obtain compliance. Todd D. Kilzer City Administrator/Clerk Public Works Director
