The City of Peoria is reminding you to cut your grass.
The Community Development Department issued a statement, with the reminder that grass and weeds cannot exceed ten inches in length. That includes fence lines, around foundations and in alleys.
The department says tall grass decreases property value and draws mosquitos.
It also says all gardens must be maintained. You are allowed to have vegetation in a garden that exceeds ten inches, but it must be cultivated.
Public lots owned by the City of Peoria or Peoria County Trustee are the responsibility of the Public Works Department.
All complaints related to private property can be reported to the Code Enforcement Division by calling 494-8654 or through Peoria Cares.
The Community Development Department works to reduce blight in neighborhoods, protect property values, increase public safety and encourage neighborhood development.
