Weed Abatement

The weed abatement program is designed to reduce and minimize the potential for the spread of fire from one property to another and to make the suppression of a fire on a particular lot quick and orderly.

It is the intent of the City to encourage property owners to maintain their property in a safe condition. Each year the Sierra Madre Fire Department conducts inspections throughout the city to ensure that all residents are in compliance with the city ordinance.

Property owners found in violation will be contacted via first class mail and will be given thirty days to clear their properties. After re-inspections of the properties are conducted, lots still found in violation are referred to the Court System.
