Monsoon Also Means Weeds

Weeds 1-websize

With all the monsoon rain we have had this year, we are facing a green fall, including all those unwanted weeds.

The code compliance division of the Development Services wants to share a friendly reminder that the city does have an ordinance that requires all weeds over 10 inches to be cut. All property owners and/or occupants are responsible for their half of any alleys at the rear of their properties and all the way to the pavement at the front yard.

While we all enjoy the green, weeds are unsightly and will become fire fuel when they dry out.

The city is expending tremendous efforts in code compliance to clean up properties throughout the city. Property owners need to help by cutting down the overgrown weeds on their property and adjacent to their property. Please help make Apache Junction a nice-looking place for all of us and our visitors to enjoy.

Code compliance staff is making great strides in addressing many of the blighting issues found in the city, but the best results come from our citizens taking pride in their properties.

There are multiple methods for weed eradication. If you are using a torch, please use extreme caution. Recently, a garage was set on fire while an owner was torching their weeds, so please be careful.

Sometime around the end of October, code compliance will begin notifying owners and/or occupants of weed-related issues. We very much appreciate any attention you can give to your landscaping now.

Any questions related to code compliance can be directed to the Code Compliance Hotline at (480) 474-5112 or via the internet at http://www.ajcity.net/requesttracker.aspx
