Vacant lots, yards, sidewalks and alleys overgrown with tall weeds are not only unsightly, but they can harbor rodents and reptiles and the most dangerous - become a fire hazard. Franklin Township has an annual "nuisance weed program" to help eliminate this problem. The program runs from May through October (depending on the weather).
Please be considerate of your neighbors and keep your property clear of weeds and debri. If you can help a friend or neighbor in need, please do so. If you are going to be out of town for an extended period of time make arrangements to have someone take care of your property. Franklin Township is a beautiful community; please help us keep it looking GREAT!
