Knox City Council Approves Tall Grass Ordinance

 The tall grass ordinance was approved on the third and final reading by the Knox City Council members Tuesday night.

There was no further discussion. The minimum height any grass or rank vegetation may reach before being subject to an ordinance violation is eight inches. If there is a violation, the penalty will be $75. Any ignorance of the warnings given will result in a contractor mowing the property and a tax lien filed against the property owner.

The city council members encourage property owners to maintain their properties to keep the city looking its best.

If there are any further questions about the ordinance, those inquires can be directed to the clerk-treasurer or to the mayor.
