It shall be unlawful for the owner of any land in the Village to maintain or permit to remain thereon any ragweed, poison ivy or other poisonous or harmful weed or plant.
It shall be the duty of the owner of any land in the Village to destroy any poison ivy, ragweed or other poisonous or harmful weed or plant thereon.
It shall be unlawful for any person owning, occupying or holding real estate to allow or maintain on any lot within the corporate limits of the Village any growth of grass or weeds to a height over six inches, and such growth of grass or weeds is hereby declared to be a nuisance injurious to the public interest and public health.
In case any owner of land in the Village fails to comply with the provisions of this chapter, the Village Clerk shall cause to be served upon him or her by mail a written notice requiring such owner to comply with such provisions. If such owner fails, neglects or refuses so to comply within five days after service of such notice, the Superintendent of Public Works shall cause the condition to be abated. In any such case, such owner shall pay to the Village all costs in connection with such abatement within 30 days after the completion thereof. Upon the failure of such owner so to pay such costs, the Superintendent of Public Works shall certify such costs to the Assessors of the Village, and thereupon such costs shall become and be a lien upon the land involved and levied upon such land and shall bear interest at the same rate as and be collected and enforced in the same manner as taxes. The provisions of this section with respect to costs shall be in addition to any penalty imposed by this Code for violation or noncompliance with any provision of this chapter.
