[HISTORY: Adopted by the Common Council of the City of Lodi as §§ 19.10 and 19.13 of the City Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No person owning property within the City shall permit to grow or pollinate upon his premises any weeds or grasses which cause or produce hay fever in human beings, exhale unpleasant or noxious odors or conceal filthy deposits. In order to prevent such growth and pollution, it shall be the duty of every property owner to mow or cause to be mowed upon his premises all grasses or weeds exceeding one foot in height.
It shall be the duty of the Director of Public Works, who shall act as the Weed Commissioner required by § 66.0517, Wis. Stats., to enforce this chapter, and if any person shall fail to comply herewith, the Director of Public Works shall, after five days' written notice to the owner, cause the premises to be mowed and report the cost thereof in writing to the Clerk in the manner provided in § 66.0517, Wis. Stats. Such charge shall be spread in the tax roll as a special tax to be collected in the same manner as other taxes, unless such lands are exempt from taxation.
