City of Amarillo Urges Landscaping Maintenance

- AMARILLO -- The City of Amarillo is encouraging area residence about the importance of managing uncultivated vegetation – tall grass and weeds – which typically follow a good rainfall.

The Municipal Code requires property owners to keep all grass and weed areas shorter than 8 inches in height

These rules help minimize fire risk as vegetation dries out and unwanted insects and vermin is at a minimum.

If you receive a notice of violation, please note that you are required to mow your area within 10 days of receiving the notice of violation. If you fail to do so, the City contracts to mow the property and charges the property owner for services provided, in addition to an administrative fee.
