Fire Protection - Vegetation Control
Once a year, the City sends out notices to property owners in densely wooded or brushy areas. These areas are highly susceptible to wild land and vegetation fires. Property owners are directed to clear combustible materials from around their homes to reduce the risk of fire damage. Call 707-543-3500 for more information or to report problems.
Once a year, the City surveys all vacant properties for weed control. Notices are mailed to owners advising them to cut or disc the weeds. For those owners who do not comply, the City sends out contractors to remove the weeds. The cost to do this plus an administrative charge is billed to the property owner and is usually added to his or her taxes. If owners desire to remove weeds themselves, they must disc or cut the weeds below four inches in height. Call 707-543-3500 for information or to report problems.
There are various City laws and regulations that govern the planting and care of street trees, example: trees planted between the curb and the sidewalk. Call 707-543-3770 for information or to report problems.
