Annual Noxious Weeds, Grass, and Vegetation Notice


Notice is hereby given that Section 12.01, Health and Sanitation of the Village of Montfort Municipal Code states:


(1)   Mowing Required.  No person owning property within the Village of Montfort shall permit to grow or pollinate upon his premises any weeds or grasses which cause or produce hay fever in human beings, exhale unpleasant or noxious odors or conceal filthy deposits.  In order to prevent such growth and pollination, it shall be the duty of every property owner to mow or cause to be mowed upon his premises all grasses or weeds exceeding one foot in height.


(2)   Mowing by Village.  It shall be the duty of the Weed Commissioner to enforce this section and if any person shall fail to comply herewith, the Commissioner shall, after 5 days written notice to the owner cause the premises to be mowed and report the cost thereof in written to the Village clerk in the manner provided in s. 94.22 of the Wisconsin Statutes.  Such charge shall be spread on the tax roll as a special tax to be collected in the same manner as other taxes unless such lands are exempt from taxation.
