Weed Control Enforcement will go into effect May 1, 2018

Notice is hereby given that after May 1 of this year the provisions of Section 84-17, Weed Control, of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Rochester Hills will be enforced. This article requires the owner of the occupant of:

1) Any lot in any subdivision in the city in which buildings have been erected on 60 percent of the lots in that subdivision to cut or destroy all noxious weeds growing on the lot;

2) Any land in the city which abuts an improved street in common usage to cut or destroy all noxious weeks growing on the land for a depth of 100 feet; and

3) Any land, platted or unplatted, in the city which abuts a subdivision in which buildings have been erected on 60 percent of the lots in that subdivision, or which abuts any school, park, playground, or occupied residential property to cut or destroy all noxious weeds growing on the land for a depth of one (100) hundred feet.

If, after May 1 of this year, the owner or occupant of any land to which this article applies shall fail or refuse to comply with the provisions of this article, then any officer, inspector or other agent authorized by the City of Rochester Hills may enter upon the land as many times as is necessary, to cut or destroy all noxious weeds growing thereon. The owner or occupant of the land shall be responsible for all costs incurred by the city in connection with such cutting or destruction plus an administration and enforcement fee equal to 1.6 times the amount paid by the city to its weed cutting contractor.

If the charges are not paid within 30 days after billing, the payment shall be deemed delinquent and shall be enforceable as a tax lien against the land.

Any person who violates any of these provisions of Section 84-17, Weed Control, of the Code of Ordinances of the City of Rochester Hills, shall, in addition to the other obligations imposed thereby or by other applicable law, be responsible for a municipal civil infraction and subject to a civil fine as provided in Section 66-37.

A copy of Chapter 84 and additional information may be obtained from the Rochester Hills Clerk's Office.
