Last Day for Ashland Residents to Trim Tall Weeds

Saturday was the deadline for homeowners in Ashland to get those weeds in around their houses trimmed down for fire season.

Officials say un-managed weeds can become a fire hazard as temperatures skyrocket and plants dry out.

The city ordinance requires grass and weeds be no more than 4-inches tall.

And for properties larger than one-acre, there has to be a buffer strip within 30-feet around homes and 15-feet around property and driveways.

Residents will be able to report neighbors who are out of compliance starting on Sunday, June 16th.
