Lawn Mowing Fines Possible

Just a reminder that the State College Borough Grass and Weed Ordinance is in effect until October 31st. According to Statecollege.com, the ordinance prohibits grass and weeds on a resident’s property from growing in excess of 6 inches high. If growth is determined to be extreme, borough officials will levy fines and hire contractors to mow lawns at the owner’s expense. Don’t worry, warnings are issued first, but after 72 hours a violation can be issued.
