Coventry, RI Homeowners Must Mow Lawns, Or Else

A new ordinance in Coventry requires property owners to mow their lawns, or risk having the town put a lien on their house.

WLNE-TV reports that the ordinance passed Monday night by the town council allows the town to issue a citation if the grass grows taller than 12 inches.

Property owners then have 10 days to mow the grass. If they don’t, the town may send a Department of Public Works employee to mow it, then place a lien on the property for the cost of the work.

Town Council President Gary Cote tells the station there have been complaints about unkempt lawns. He says people with hardships can seek an exemption.
