Citizens of Ida Grove… start your mowers!

Spring is in the air, Ida Grovians, and that means that yards are green and growing fast (especially with recent rains). Keeping a lawn properly mown not only makes for great looking properties and neighborhoods, it keeps the pollen-causing allergies at bay as well! All properties, whether vacated or non-vacated, are required to be mowed any time the vegetation reaches a height of more than 12 inches in the months of April, May, June, July, August, September and October. Any property which is not mowed after the vegetation reaches a height of 12 inches may be mowed by the City or their agents and a charge of $75 per hour for such mowing, plus a surcharge of $100, will be charged to the property owner (that’s about the same amount most residents spend for mower gas in an entire summer!). You may request a full copy of Ordinance Number 528 by calling City Hall at 364-2428.
