Public Notice

Starting on May 1, 2023, all properties located in the City of Newaygo will be subject to enforcement of Art. II of Chapter 82 to the City of Newaygo’s Code of Ordinances entitled “Weeds, Grass and Rank Vegetation Ordinance” (Code 1980, § 6.25; Ordinance No. 2023-02, as amended 3-13-2023), as authorized under Michigan’s Noxious Weeds Act, PA 359 of 1941, as amended.

The purpose of this Ordinance is to maintain the character and development of landscaping in the neighborhood by removing noxious weeds and any other uncontrolled plant growth, weeds, or grass exceeding six (6) inches in height in order to prevent them from becoming a detriment to public health.

Under the relevant portions of the Noxious Weeds Act and the Ordinance, it is the responsibility of all owners and/or occupants to prevent and/or eliminate noxious weeds before they reach a seed-bearing stage of growth, and/or to cut weeds and tall grass to not exceed six (6) inches in yards on a routine basis but does not apply to weeds in fields devoted to growing crops.

Failure to comply with this notice will result in the City taking action by contracting for the services necessary to enter the property and remedy the conditions. Methods of treating and eradicating the noxious weeds and grass may include the use of mechanical mowing, cutting, or trimming equipment.

All expenses incurred to bring this property into compliance shall be paid by the owner(s) and/or occupant(s). A lien shall be placed against the property, and if not paid, the amount may be assessed as a special tax against such land on the next assessment roll and will be collected in the next tax cycle.

Please contact Newaygo City Office at (231) 652-1657 Ext. 227 or if you have any questions or concerns.
