How tall are grass and weeds allowed to grow?

In the City of Grimes, grass/weeds are not allowed to exceed 12 inches (City Code Section 302.4). Also, please don’t blow grass clippings into the street. This debris can cause nitrates to build up in the City's stormwater infrastructure causing area waterways to become contaminated. Piles of clippings can be hazardous to bicyclists as well. To report concerns related to lawn maintenance, please call 515-986-4050.
