MIDLAND, TX (KWES)
City officials in Midland are warning residents that they're going to be cracking down on weed and grass ordinance violators soon.
Code compliance officers will start issuing notices to comply at homes and businesses around the Tall City starting July 27.
While they are not citations, officials say owners who ignore the notices could face the consequences if they refuse to comply.
Residents are urged to maintain the areas around their homes as well as the alleyways behind their buildings.
It's all being done to prevent the grass from turning into a fire hazard or a habitat for pests.
