The City of Abilene is not enforcing its own code regarding high grass and weeds at city properties.

Grass, weeds, or bushes are not suppose to be higher than 12 inches, but at the city pump station on South Danville and Brief Street, that isn't the case.

The weeds were higher than a yardstick. Neighbors have been complaining that if they allow their yards to reach that condition, they get cited.

We reached out to the city and were told they own a lot of properties and do have people out mowing everyday and will eventually get to the property at the pump station.
