Town of Smyrna
Helping to Keep You
Smyrna has an ordinance which prohibits grass, weeds and vegetation other than properly maintained trees, edible vegetables and flowers to grow higher than ten inches from the ground within the Town Limits.
The ordinance also prohibits grass, weeds or any other vegetation from growing in sidewalks, walkways, stairs, driveways, parking areas, etc.
The first time each calendar year that a property is found to be in violation, a notice will be posted on the property giving seven (7) days’ notice to correct the violation. If the problem is not abated, the Town will have the violation corrected and the property owner will be billed for the cost.
All violations occurring after written notification will be abated without notice to the property owner.
