City of Odessa Warning Residents About Overgrown Grass

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

The City of Odessa is asking residents to keep up with their weeds and vegetation.

They say overgrown grass can be a health and safety hazard by creating a fire danger and a breeding ground for mosquitos.

They also want to remind people that it's not just the front of a property, backyards and alleyways also need to be kept up.

If not, property owners could face fines of up to $500 for vegetation more than 12 inches tall.
