They may not seem like a problem now, but as the weather warms up and we head into summer the greens in your yard can turn into a veritable jungle of weeds, dandelions, and other noxious vegetation.

The City of Casper wants to remind property owners and others that there are rules for dealing with weeds that get out of hand. Here's more information from a release from Code Enforcement Supervisor Shelley LeClere:

"The City of Casper would like to remind property owners/tenants (commercial and residential) that your property, which includes the abutting alleys and sidewalk/parkway areas, must be maintained free of weeds, dandelions, and other noxious vegetation that are in excess of eight (8) inches in height.


The City of Casper will notify you only one time in any calendar year of a weed violation, and the property owner/tenant has 10 days to remove the violation. If the violation is not removed or other arrangements made, the City can either mow the property and assess the costs to the property owner/tenant, or file a complaint through Municipal Court for non-compliance of the City ordinance.


So, let’s all pitch in to keep our properties, abutting alleys, and sidewalk/parkway areas free and clear of weeds and noxious vegetation. A little effort goes a long way towards ensuring that our neighborhoods are a cleaner and safer place to live, work, and play."

If you have any questions or would like to report a violation, you can contact the Code Enforcement Department at (307) 235-8254 or visit the City of Casper website at
