City Inspectors Busy with Weed Complaints

It's weed and allergy season in Tucson, and City inspectors are receiving numerous reports from people complaining that their neighbors aren't taking care of the vegetation in their yards. City code requires property owners to cut their weeds, even if they don't live in a homeowners association.

The code says weeds and lawn grass must not exceed six inches in length. Residents are given a 10-day notice to take care of the weeds. If they ignore the violation, they might be fined $153 to $2,500.

Inspectors only investigate complaints they receive. Complaints can be filed online on the City’s Code Enforcement website (link below) or by calling (520) 791-5843.
