Have you noticed increased grass and weed growth this spring? We have too! The overgrowth is due to a few recent anomalies:
- Unusual rain levels with more than 10 inches of precipitation this year.
- Contractors across the region are inundated and running behind on their operations.
- Mowing requires one pass to address long grass with a large mower and then returning with smaller equipment for cleanup, which does not always occur on the same day.
The Parks Division schedules mowing based on acreage and the contractor's availability. With long stretches of hot, dry weather ahead, crews anticipate being steps ahead of the growth. To report an area that needs attention, please use the ErieSubmit app.
