DENVER — No, not that kind of weed. We’re talking real weeds which quickly become eyesores in the neighborhood when left uncut by property owners.
Denver Code Enforcers are on patrol this week looking for weeds growing taller than six inches in height and length — much to the delight of neighbors on the block where big weeds live.
“We have power to notify owners of violations, but after the second posting, we can even levy fines,” said Robbin Bruning. “After the fines go unpaid we can even put a lien on the property to get the violations corrected.”
The city has lists of volunteers who will come out and cut weeds for those who simply cannot do the work. They will also send out abatement crews from the city to cut down the unattended vegetation.
The whole code violation program is designed to keep the city looking as beautiful as it can.
If you have a weedy yard to report just call your complaint into Denver’s 311.
