Report High Grass or Weeds

Madison Township takes an aggressive approach to good property maintenance. 

By the authority of the State of Ohio and Franklin County, Madison Township is proactive to issues of high grass or weeds.

High grass and weeds are no longer defined by a height, but according to the Franklin County Board of Health, "All premises, exterior property and yards shall be maintained free from excessive grass, weeds and/or vegetative growth so as not to adversely affect public health".  

All reports are investigated and photos taken by an employee of Madison Township.

Property owners are given 10 days, from receipt of the notice to address the issue.  If action is not taken by the property owner, the Township Public Works Dept. will mow the area and the Township will assess the property taxes at a rate of $300 per hour of mowing time.  Should there be a second incident, these are given 5 days to comply. 

Let’s all be good neighbors and have pride in our neighborhoods.
