If the property is within our Incorporated Town, then our Property Standards Authority division will seek to gain further information on the owner. Once the owner is contacted, the property must be in good standing within 30 days. However, if the property is not cleaned, then the Town is responsible for cutting the property and cleaning all trash and debris and a lien is then placed on the property.
