The City of Taylor has received many calls concerning lawn maintenance.
Under the Governors executive order, lawn cutting is necessary for the health and safety of each household. Neglecting grass cutting can result in serious health concerns such as increased rodents and insect problems. Therefore, the City will be enforcing, as we do every year, lawn mowing and weeds guidelines.
We ask that during this COVID-19 pandemic, residents keep their lawns in proper order. Cut your grass. Despite GFL’s rollback in curbside compost pickup starting on Monday, April 13, the City’s Transfer and Compost Facility at 16300 Racho Road, will be open for compost drop offs. Any resident (with ID) can drop off compost during regular business hours. Compost drop offs will be free and will not count against your annual “one drop off” limit.
If you use a lawn service, the City will allow contractors to cut grass – but nothing else. We fully expect lawn contractors to adhere to proper safety precautions to protect their employees properly from COVID-19. Non-essentially landscaping is still prohibited, and landscapers must follow social-distancing guidelines embodied in Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s emergency guidelines.
