TAYLOR — The city has received many calls concerning lawn maintenance.
Under Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s 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 lawn mowing and weeds guidelines.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, residents should keep their lawns in proper order. Despite GFL’s rollback in curbside compost pickup starting April 13, the city Transfer and Compost Facility, 16300 Racho Road, will be open for compost dropoffs. Any resident (with identification) can drop off compost during regular business hours. Compost dropoffs will be free and will not count against an annual “one drop off” limit.
If you use a lawn service, the city will allow contractors to cut grass, but nothing else. Lawn contractors must adhere to proper safety precautions to protect their employees properly from COVID-19. Non-essential landscaping is still prohibited, and landscapers must follow social-distancing guidelines embodied in Whitmer’s emergency guidelines.
