What are the codes regarding high grass and weeds?

It is a violation for any person owning, claiming, occupying, or having control of any property within the city to permit weeds, brush, vegetative growth, or any objectionable or unsightly matter to grow to a height greater than 12 inches. If the property is five acres or more, the owner or person in control is required to mow at least a 100-foot perimeter from the property line. 

If a person fails to comply with these requirements and is convicted in the City of Paris Municipal Court, the fine could be as much as $2,000 for every day the violation exists. The city can also correct the violation at the owner's expense and assess an administrative penalty of $220. If the costs of the work are not paid within 30 days, a lien will be filed against the property.
