Is Your Grass Too Long?
With all the rain Wheaton received this summer, lawns have been growing quickly. The City reminds you that extremely tall grass is not only a nuisance to neighbors, it also might violate City Code. Grass and weeds must be less than 8 inches high, as set by Wheaton’s City Code. Please ensure that your lawn complies with this requirement. For more information, see Section 78-92 of the Wheaton City Code.
In addition, for everyone’s safety, please make sure to remove branches or shrubbery that overhang the street or sidewalk in a way that interferes with vehicle or pedestrian traffic or inhibits the visibility of vehicle traffic.
