4/30/2014 1:51:00 PM City to charge $200 to mow unkempt yards
The North Vernon City Council passed a new ordinance at their meeting April 28. The new law allows the city to charge $200 for those property owners who do not keep their yards trimmed. A repeat mowing will cost even more-$250. The city will give the property owner(s) a warning that they must cut their grass and/or weeds that are over 12 inches in height. If the cost is not reimbursed, the city will place a lien on that property with the charge collected with the property taxes.
