ATTENTION PROPERTY OWNERS: POSSIBLE FINES FOR YARD WASTE / DEBRIS

Grass clippings in streets and public right-of-ways clog stormdrains and cause localized flooding. They are also a hazard for motorcyclists and bicyclists and can cause wrecks. As per Chapter 14 of the Municipal Code, the City will be issuing warnings to all property owners with grass clippings or yard debris blown into the street or other public right-of-way. After an initial warning, property owners continuing to discharge grass clippings and other yard debris into the street or public right-of-way will be ticketed.
