Urban Grass & Weeds
All properties within the Township of Huron Kinloss must be maintained to certain standards. The Urban Area Weed and Grass Cutting By-Law 2003-40 states grass and weeds must be cut whenever growth exceeds 20cm in height.
If a property is noticed in contravention, a registered letter will be sent with a compliance date noted. If compliance is not reached, the Township of Huron Kinloss will ensure the property conforms at the property owner(s) expense.
If you are aware of properties in violation to this by-law please contact the By-Law Enforcement Officer at 519-395-3844
Landowners are advised that pursuant to the Weed Control Act, 1990, noxious weeds growing on their property must be destroyed. Noxious weeds not destroyed by the landowner can be destroyed by the township with the related costs being billed to the landowner.
