a. Two or more tires are flat.
b. One or more wheels are missing.
c. The hood is raised or missing and has appeared to remain so for more than three days.
d. Weeds or grass have grown up around the vehicle.
e. Major operating components are missing or in such damaged condition so as to make the motor vehicle useless. Major operating components include but may not be limited to: windshield glass, gauges, steering wheel, tie rods, springs, drive train, gear box, rear end, or any part connected with the steering geometry of the motor vehicle or the seats are removed.
f. The vehicle has no current vehicle tags or registration.
Owners of vehicles that are found to be inoperable are given 30 days to make the necessary repairs to the vehicle or to remove it from the property.

City Ordinance Sec 30-5 states that the grass cannot be more than 12 inches tall. Usually for first offenses, we will give a written warning as a reminder to keep the grass cut. If the grass is not taken care of or there is a subsequent complaint or violation, a citation will then be issued.
Property owners are responsible for keeping their yards mowed. If the owner lives out of the area or has the property has been abandoned, we will send a certified letter and give a due date to have the grass cut. If the owner doesn’t respond, we will have a contractor cut the grass and charge the owner for the work.
