Property Maintenance and COVID-19 Information



Grass must be cut before it reaches 12” tall to help control mosquitos. Property owners are responsible for maintaining boulevards, alleys, and ditches to the center of the street.

Weeds should be sprayed and/or destroyed to avoid invasive species.

Trees must be trimmed 8’ above sidewalks, 12’ above streets and alleys, and at least 2’ away from signs to maintain pedestrian and driver safety. Property owners are responsible to promptly destroy disease infected or dead trees. Property owners are also responsible to remove any downed trees and branches located in the boulevard and/or on private property.

Junk must not be accumulated in yards in order to help prevent mosquitos and other vectors. This especially includes items such as buckets and old tires which can hold water.

The Buzz

In Watford I got to go to my first National Park. I made some friends and we went to the badlands and saw things we never heard of before like jackrabbits and mule deer. In my opinion Watford is the best city ever!
