City of Odessa: Overgrown Weeds 10/8/12
City of Odessa
October 8, 2012
October 8, 2012 – Weeds, or any other vegetation, more than twelve inches tall are illegal in the City limits. Overgrown weeds and vegetation are health and safety hazards by creating fire hazards and breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
Property 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. Property maintenance by owners, or tenants, is important for the health, safety and beauty of our community. Please help keep our City safe and clean by keeping overgrown weeds and vegetation cut down.
October is National Code Enforcement Awareness Month. Code Enforcement Officers in the City of Odessa work with businesses and residents to promote awareness of City codes to keep our City a safe and clean place to live, work and play.
