Why isn't the City doing something about a property complaint I made?

Several factors may contribute to the amount of time required to respond to a citizen's report of a nuisance, including:

  • The ability or cooperation of the property owner
  • Contractor's workload
  • Inclement weather
  • Locating the property owner

Growing Season

During the growing season, complaint inspections and abatement are significantly delayed due to the number of calls received for tall grass and weeds. From the initial inspection to owner notification, and to subsequent abatement, there may be delays due to the timelines set by the State, and by the property owner's willingness to comply.
