3/30/2015 Spring Mowing
Residents and Property Owners of Boone: Spring is upon us which, along with the good weather, brings green grass and lots of growth. The City of Boone is required by ordinance to maintain properties that do not cut grass, weeds and volunteer trees. As part of our process, the City has advertised and received bid proposals for this grass mowing. These bids for the 2015 mowing season are $30 per lot. This coupled with the required $50 civil penalty and $ 5 administrative fee make the charges for neglected properties a minimum of $85.
Residents and property owners are encouraged to take notice of these property maintenance requirements. The City of Boone appreciates your cooperation in keeping properties in compliance with applicable ordinances to avoid these charges. If you have questions regarding these requirements, please feel free to contact the Boone Police Department, Community Service Officer at 515-432-3456. Further ordinance information is available at www.boonegov.com .
