Unkempt yards and trash concerns.

Posted on July 18, 2018 at 10:54 AM by Nancy Oakland-Potter

Two possible ways to encourage neighbors to care for their yards is to serve as an example by keeping our own yards maintained and, if you feel comfortable doing so, talk to your neighbor about the impact their unkempt yard is having on their neighbors (weeds seeding in other yards, decreasing salability of neighboring properties, etc.). If a major problem with weeds persists, you may contact the Code Enforcement Inspector at 721-5285.

Regarding construction workers, it would be best to contact the construction company and report the issue to them directly. If the problem persists, you may contact the Code Administration Department at 721-5271.

Grand Avenue is considered a state highway and is therefore mainly under WYDOT’s stewardship. If there is a business or residence adjacent to the location of the trash, the owner of that property is responsible for trash containment.
