The Town's Lot Cleanup program is an umbrella program that includes service requests relating to overgrown grass, debris, abandoned houses, board-ups or clean ups, lot cleanups and other "quality of life" property complaints.
The complaint can involve private, town, or other public agency-owned property. If the complaint involves town property, it will usually be cleaned up within a week of notification. If the complaint involves private property where there is debris or other material left on the curbside, the Town will attempt to contact the property owner to remove it immediately. If not taken care of, the Town will schedule a cleanup by Town staff and bill the property owner for the expenses.
The purpose of the program is to educate property owners as to the requirements of specific property responsibilities, not to issue summonses. The first effort is always to obtain code compliance.
