It's that time of year again! Mowing season is here.

MOWING OF PROPERTIES
City of Afton Ordinance Chapter 50.02 (9):
Mowing of Properties: Any property within the City of Afton, whether vacated or non-vacated, is required to be mowed any time the vegetation reaches a height of more than eight (8) inches.
Penalty: The City or its agents may mow any property that is not mowed and a charge of $75.00 per hour for such mowing, plus a surcharge of $100.00, will be charged to the property owner. Any property owners who fail to mow their properties, thus allowing the same to be mowed by the City or their agents, and who do not provide payment for the mowing as required, will be assessed by the City for such costs, which will be collected in the same manner as general property taxes.

For those wondering about the major potholes- The City has contracted Feldhacker to spray injection (mixture of some kind oil and rock which is supposed to last longer than cold patch). Due to rock mixture/ machine issues the potholes did not get fixed this week, hopefully Feldhackers will be in Afton next week to fix our potholes.
