Mow your lawn, or else, in Cosmopolis, Wash.

Aug 18, 2011

COSMOPOLIS, Wash. – The Cosmopolis City Council has passed a new law on lawns. The height limit is 8 inches.

The short grass ordinance takes effect Aug. 22. Offenders will have two weeks from receiving notice to mow. Otherwise they could be fined up to $200 a day.

If a shaggy lawn is not mowed in 30 days, the city may mow it and put a lien on the home for the cost.

KBKW reports Mayor Vickie Raines doesn't like the cutting ordinance. She says there are times when the city's own cemetery isn't mowed.
