Public Notice 

Prohibited Growth of Grass & Weeds

The citizens of Grand Rapids, Ohio are hereby advised of Appendix A 60 of the Codified Ordinances of Grand Rapids which states that no owner, lessee, agent, or tenant of land shall permit noxious weeds or grass to grow to a height exceeding 8 inches. Failure to keep such weeds or grass cut in conformity with this section shall constitute a violation hereof. First offense in the calendar year shall cause a written notice to be served upon the owner, lessee, agent, or tenant having charge of such land by ordinary US mail notifying him that such noxious weeds or grass are growing on such lands and that they must be cut and destroyed within five days after the service of such notice.

If the owner, lessee, agent, or tenant having charge of the lands herein referred to fails to comply with such notice, the Village administrator shall cause such noxious weeds or grass to be cut and destroyed and the expenses shall become a lien upon such lands from and after the date of the entry and to be collected as other taxes and returned to the Village according to law.

There shall be no written notice for the second offense. The Village shall cause such noxious weeds or grass to be cut and all expenses so incurred shall become a lien upon such lands, and a misdemeanor offense shall be filed in Bowling Green Municipal Court.
