City begins tall grass, weed enforcement

The City of Spencer this week began surveying properties for grass and weeds more than eight inches tall, the maximum height allowed per city code.

Staff began enforcement of the height rule on May 1, according to a statement from the city.

Notices will be posted on properties with grass and weeds in excess of eight inches. Property owners have seven days to mow upon receipt of the notice.


After seven days, the city will have the property mowed. Associated costs will be billed to the property owner.

Property owners can apply for a “haying” exemption by contacting Delray Bredehoeft at 712-580-7260.
