Yeah!! That'll show them!! Charge them $500 for not cutting their grass, then they won't be able to pay someone to do it, or fuel their mowers to cut it.

Why not just add it to the City Service fee and have the city workers do it!?

Brag brag and brag. What if you were elderly, disabled, in this demanding world? It is time people quit worrying about their neighbor's grass and start worrying about their neighbor. What is wrong with this state with all the drug problems and a disabled, elderly population? They need to look a little more to the heart of our neighbor and offer help. Charleston, have you lost your marbles with all the drug problems and you are worried about a little grass. Somebody up there been smokin' some?

Oh yeah, you got a lawn mower & trimmer that don't run on gas?? Expensive gas?! God forbid you offer to help instead of assuming that someone is simply lazy.

Maybe they don't have the means, equipment or physical ability?!

No one is forcing you to "look" at your neighbor's weeds.

Stop being a dick and offer to help a neighbor.

Damn haughty people like you are what's wrong with this shit country!

Perhaps you should have used better judgement in choosing that location for a house. Poor judgement will cause you a lot of anxiety. Everyone makes decisions it is just yours was poor.

Or maybe the people of this one need to get their head out of their, as you say, "AZZ" and treat each other with a little f*cking compassion!!

Do you know what that word means?? Do you want me to look it up for your dumb AZZ??

Nobody said a word about disabled and elderly. If I, at the tender age of 62 can get out and cut grass with a mower that runs on expensive gas out of my SSI, then my 26 year old neighbor should be able to do the same instead of smoking dope on the porch all day!
Just remember this and remember it well. Every law or ordinance passed eats a little bit more of your freedom...your freedom. Tender age of 62...I got you beat by several years. But, when I had surgery my grass got out of hand....due to a fixed income and too ill to cut it. Now what I needed was some idiot trying to fine me $100 ON TOP OF MY OTHER PROBLEMS. Hope your 62 year old self matures enough to look around and offer help instead of criticism. That young person may change, and he is a human even if his grass is high. You have placed yourself way below him with your attitude. If you smoked some weed you might loosen up a little and prioritize better.

Come on people. If ur grazz is 10 inches long then there's a problem. U r driving down the value of my property. U can pay a lawn service to cut ur grazz for around$35. These kids in kanawha city cut any lawn for $35. ANY lawn.
Its real easy

If you don't want a bunch of laws and rules don't live in the city. It's that easy. Live in the city and you've got lot's of crap to put up with but that's the way it works. So either cut your grass or move. Two easy choices.

They have a third choice. Pay the fine for ur grazz being over 10 inches which by the way is then considered hay I think. Just guessing

Well I've got two houses on my street with grass close to a foot and a half and you can bet the city will be notified. They need to fine the idiots too that put out the trash the night before trash day too because every time there's a critter dinner mess that the city has to clean up because people are too lazy to get up and put out the trash in the morning but then some city worker has to clean up their mess.

There you go making assumptions! During a short period of disability I had to put out trash the night before as unable to get up early enough to go dragging a big ole can to curb. I had to carry over a period of a few hours one bag at a time as could not do heavy lifting. Then I would put the lid on tightly and leave for morning pick up. Also grass got high. I do well now, but thank the good Lord for those periods of time in my life where I had problems. It taught me humility and to help my neighbor instead of condemning. Many lessons can be learned. Furthermore would you like to know 1 of the reasons I am not prejudiced. I got a flat on a lonely road one time. I was frightened as was in the wee hours and I am a female. I honked at passing cars and they kept going. I watched a rattle trap type car turn around and a young Afro American male offered to change my tire. He changed it, and he would not take pay. I did not get his name, but this white female has randomly given help to others ever since. Be kind and be nice to folks. It can't hurt. Might even earn you a crown!

They should be fined not only for the lawn but also for junk in their yards. It brings everyone's morale down to have to see a mess.

Just curious....are you retarded? You do know the difference in "s" & "z", right? You're making yourself look stupid.

The other people are saying, "What if they can't afford...", and your dumbass is harping about "pay someone to cut it".

F*cking moron, your stupid is showing.

Good lord, can you think about anything else to cry about?? All trash services, if you read your fine print (that is IF you can read) will tell you to put your trash out the night before, or else you could miss pick up. You don't have to clean it up, why you butthurt?? Just need something to complain about??

Maybe your neighbors are disabled & poor, ever think about getting off of YOUR lazy ass and seeing if you could help? Of course not, you're one of those self centered little c*nts who only think about themselves. PATHETIC!!!!

I completely agree. I've put countless hours and thousands of dollars in my yard yet the guy 4 houses down is currently at about 2 feet high with weeds growing though his porch floor. Quit acting and living like bums people. Its not hard to mow all you have to do is walk behind a mower. If you all want to look like a bunch of poor white trash bums then GTHO of Charleston. Charge em $500 for the first time the city mows it then start an eviction process the 2nd time!!!

I really hate it for you but neat lawn never got anyone to heaven, never raised a child to be proud of. Oh, and not once did I ever see anyone stand over a casket and say, "He sure had a neat lawn."
