New Policy In North Baltimore Addresses High Grass

6/22/18 – 8:25 A.M.

North Baltimore is taking steps to handle tall grass and weeds faster. The Sentinel-Tribune reports that under the new plan, the village will deliver the complaint in person or with a door hanger. Once that happens, the property owner has five days to mow. If they don’t, the village will mow the yard and assess the owner the cost.

If the property owner lives out of town the village will send them a certified letter. If it is undeliverable, the village can mow right away. If it is not returned, the village will run a notice in a local newspaper and then mow the yard.

Residents had complained the current system takes to long to work through.
