Lot MowingNew code lowers grass violation to 12 inches

Lee County Commissioners adopted a new lot mowing ordinance on April 1, 2014. Some of the changes include establishing that a violation occurs when grass is greater than 12 inches in height over 50% of the parcel (the previous height was 16 inches). Property Owners will receive an invoice if the County sends multiple notices to the same property within a 12 month period, regardless of abatement. Click here to view the entire ordinance.
