Beginning January 1, Jefferson Parish residents will be required to keep the grass and weeds on their lawns to a maximum height of eight inches.
The parish sent out a reminder of the ordinance this week. It was passed on July 24 of this year to take effect on January 1.
The ordinance changed the previous maximum height for grass and weeds from 12 inches to 8.
Anyone who has complaints of grass or weeds in excess of the height can submit them to http://www.jeffparish.net or call 364-3540
