TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio's fourth-largest city plans to issue a citywide warning to residents: mow you lawn or we'll do it for you for a price.
Toledo officials say they want to put a notice in newspapers telling residents with out-of-control yards that they must mow their lawns within 5 days.
Those who don't comply may find city crews mowing their grass if it is eight inches high or more.
The Blade newspaper in Toledo ( http://bit.ly/L8ExPL ) reports that property owners would face at least a $75 fine and have to pay the city back for the mowing costs.
The city's public service director says it's a zero-tolerance policy, and that it will allow the city to quickly respond to unruly lawns.
