City of Kearney Reminds Citizens to Maintain Property and Trees

City of Kearney

During this time of year it is important to keep in mind the laws regarding the maintenance of lawns. City Code states citizens are required to keep property free and clear weeds, and shall not allow any growth of 12 inches or more in height of weeds, grasses, or worthless vegetation. In the event a property owner fails, neglects, or refuses to cut any grass or weeds within 5 days after receipt of notice, or request a hearing with the City Manager, the City Manager may cause the lawns to be cut and assess the costs.

Also, City Code states citizens are required to treat, trim, or remove all dead, diseased, damaged, or dangerous branches, limbs, or trees now growing in the public rights-of-way of the City of Kearney. In the event a property owner fails, neglects, or refuses to treat, trim, or remove all dead, diseased, damaged, or dangerous branches, limbs, or trees now growing in the public rights-of-way within 10 days after receipt of notice, or request a hearing with the City, the City may have such work done and costs assessed against the parcel of real property.
