Rochester Tall Grass Ordinance
Rochester Tall Grass and Weed Ordinance
With all the rain and excessive heat we've had lately, it's been hard to keep up with the mowing. Make sure you are keeping on top of your yardwork because you could get fined.
Grass must be mowed to at least under twelve inches long according to the "Tall Grass and Weeds" Ordinance.* The ordinance will be enforced by complaints. So if you keep your grass too long a neighbor could potentially call you in. Complaints can be submitted by calling the Forestry Department (507-328-2515) or by emailing ForestryService@rochestermn.gov. Here's what happens next.
You can also be cited for having noxious weeds on your land. For a list of which weeds need to be controlled, removed, or completely eradicated, click here.
If you are fined, the costs to you are:
$60 for first citation
$90 for second citation
$120 for three or more citations
