WEED PLOW DOWN NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNERS

WEED PLOW DOWN NOTICE
TO PROPERTY OWNERS

Colusa County has declared that the growth and accumulation of weeds in the unincorporated areas of the County poses a fire, safety and public health risk to the residents of these areas and therefore has declared weeds a seasonal and recurring nuisance.

It is the responsibility of each property owner to remove weeds from his or her property by May 15th, 2019.  Removal may be done by dicing, plowing, rot tilling, mowing, cutting or other method approved by the local fire authority.

The areas where weed removal shall be done:

■ Improved Lots or Parcels.  For strip of land fifty (50) feet wide surrounding the entire property of any improvement, provided that is any portion of any improvement is within (50) feet of the property line, then removal at the location need to only take place up to the property line.

■ For Vacant Lots or Parcels.  If a vacant lot or parcel abuts another lot or parcel, upon which lies an improvement, then removal shall take place on the vacant lot or parcel to the extent that a clearance of fifty (50) feet from such improvement exists.

■ Improvement.  Improvement means commercial, retail and residential structure and any accessory structure used in conjunction with such commercial, retail and residential structure, including, but not limited to, storage sheds, detached garages, greenhouses and fences.

Failure to complete removal by the plow down date herein before prescribed, shall constitute an infraction punishable by a fine no to exceed FIFTY DOLLARS ($50.00) and the Department may proceed to abate the nuisance and removal of the weeds.  Cost of the weed removal by the Department shall be apportioned to your property and in addition to an administrative charge, shall be a special assessment upon such property and added to our property bill as provided for in Government Code Section 25845.
