Property owners are reminded that they are responsible for making sure they maintain their lots and yards. In the event an owner, lessee, agent or tenant does not cut overgrown grass and weeds above eight inches in height, the City of Piqua is required by the Piqua Code of Ordinances to take action by hiring a contractor to abate the nuisance.
Abatement fees will be charged to the property owner by the City for mowing, clearing, or trimming grass and weeds. These fees will be double the cost charged to the City by the contractor hired by the City to perform such work, with an additional administrative fee of one hundred dollars ($100.00).
Tall grass and weeds can be reported on the city’s website at www.piquaoh.org/citizen-action-line/ or by leaving a voicemail message at 937-778-2813.
