MassillonLIVE! .. We Take You There!

October 9, 2017:

If you're not mowing your lawn; legislation proposed to mow it for you .. for a fee!

(Massillon): Are you one of those lazy lawn mowers? I know I am. Our days as lazy lawn mowers may be coming to an end thanks to legislation being proposed during Mondays work session. Actually; if you pay no attention to your property; presently; the city would be happy to mow and then send you the bill by assessing your property taxes to cover the cost.

The program is already in place; and according to SSD Joel Smith; its been fairly successful. The new legislation would propose outsourcing those services to an independent contractor which would free up city workers to focus on street repairs.

Below is broadcast coverage from SSD Smith as he presents this proposed legislation to city council.
