If you hear lawnmowers in the next few days, some may be the result of city warnings.
Letters will go out to many offenders of Windom’s grass height ordinance, according to Street Superintendent Brian Cooley.
“Last week after receiving many complaints I drove around the city finding over 100 lawns that needed mowing according to our ordinance” Cooley said this week. “This is more than double what we had last year at this time. “
Cooley said he will recheck offending lawns. If they remain out of compliance, they may be mowed by the city–at the homeowner’s expense.
