Lubbock code enforcement focusing on weeds violations

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The recent rain has helped green yards around Lubbock. But it also means there are plenty of weeds.

From the City of Lubbock:

On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, our Code Enforcement officers will be focusing their daily inspections on weeds violations:

  • Uncultivated vegetation over 8 inches high is a violation of the nuisance weed ordinance.
  • Property owners have to mow from the front curb of their property to the middle of their alley.
  • The Codes Department sends out notices of violation to property owners listed on the tax records.
  • Property owners have 7 days to mow their property after they receive a citation.
  • If a property owner does not mow their property, the Codes Department uses private contractors to mow the property.
  • If the Codes Department mows your property, you will be charged for the cost of the mowing plus a $150 administration charge.
  • If that charge goes unpaid, you can have a lien placed on your property.

If you have unkempt yards in your neighborhood, you can call 311 or (806) 775-3000 and submit a report. You can also call the Weeds Hotline at (806) 775-2290, leave an address and our Code Enforcement officers will check out the complaint.
