What if my property doesn't comply with the standards?
Staff for both the Weed Abatement and Brush Abatement Programs maintain lists of properties that were found to be non-compliant with respective program requirements Properties are added to the Weed Abatement Program list as County inspectors identify properties that don't comply.


All properties in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) area of the City are automatically part of the Brush Abatement Program, managed by the County Fire Department. A list of properties that fail to meet requirements are presented to the City Council during a hearing in June. At that time, the City Council decides whether to refer the properties to the Weed Abatement Program for removal of violations. Properties in the Weed Abatement Program list will not receive notices or be inspected by the Brush Abatement Program.
