Tall Grass – Hazardous Vegetation (Tall Grass; also formerly known as Nuisance Weeds) are all weeds, grasses and uncared for vegetation growing to a height in excess of 8” between July 15th and Oct. 31st each year within the City.   The City believes that Tall Grass present a fire hazard as well as problems and therefore their elimination is in the best interest of the Public.  All Tall Grass must be removed from properties within the City of Red Lodge between July 15th and Oct. 31st each year.  Based upon the weather of the season, the removal of Tall Grass may be required multiple times throughout the season.

In the event Tall Grass are found to exist within the City, the property owner will be notified.  If the Tall Grass remain after July 15th, or return at any time before Oct. 31st, the City will have the parcel(s) mowed.  At that point, the City will invoice the property owner for the associated  costs of removal.  Additionally, the City may issue a fine of $250 per day for each property not in compliance with the Code.

The Municipal Code regarding Tall Grass (formerly known as Nuisance Weeds) may be found at www.qcode.us/codes/redlodge — (Title 4, Chapter 3, Article 3B)
