Maintaining Your Yard

The City of Lexington's city code SECTION 10.33. MAINTENANCE OF PRIVATE PROPERTY.
Subd. 1. Owner Responsibilities
states that "It is the primary responsibility of any owner or occupant of any lot or parcel of land to maintain any weeds or grass growing thereon at a height of not more than six (6) inches; to remove all public health or safety hazards there from; to install or repair water service lines thereon; and to treat or remove insect-infested or diseased trees thereon"

This includes the front, back and side yards.

Do not allow your grass clipping to go into the streets when you mow. If they do they need to be swept up immediately.

SECTION 7.07. OBSTRUCTIONS IN STREETS Subd. 3. Dumping in Streets. It is a misdemeanor for any person to throw or deposit in any street any nails, dirt, glass or glassware, cans, discarded cloth or clothing, metal scraps, garbage, leaves, grass or tree limbs, paper or paper products, shreds or rubbish, oil, grease or other petroleum products, or to empty any water containing salt or other injurious chemical thereon. It is a violation of this Section to haul any such material, inadequately enclosed or covered, thereby permitting the same to fall upon streets. It is also a violation of this Section to place or store any building materials or waste resulting from building construction or demolition on any street without first having obtained a written permit from the Council.
