Code Enforcement Awareness
The City of Liberty Hill maintains rules and regulations designed to ensure safe and attractive neighborhoods and businesses. The City of Liberty Hill Code Enforcement Division works to ensure that the provisions of the City's municipal code are followed by enforcing these rules and regulations. By doing so will help preserve the safety and welfare of residents, maintain property values, deter luring criminal activity, and reduce the habitual spreading of further city ordinance violations.
Please spread the word within your neighborhood to correct any violations or issues. View the City of Liberty Hill ordinances and if you see an incident in violation of an ordinance, you can report a complaint to the City of Liberty Hill's Code Enforcement Officer.
Michael Hinds, Code Enforcement Officer for the City of Liberty Hill, is focusing on the health and safety of the community. “The most important thing for me is to ensure everyone is safe but to also help beautify Liberty Hill,” he said. Nuisance violations containing junk vehicles/materials and high weeds/grass are at the center of his new role.
Junk vehicles and materials
Abandoned vehicles that are inoperable, dismantled or wrecked, left unattended for more than 48-hours and left visible on private and public property within the City limits are in violation of the city ordinance. Vehicles must be road operable, have up-to-date plates and have a current registration from the State of Texas. Once notified from the City of a junk vehicle, the owner has 30 days for the vehicle to either be removed, stored or parked in a non-visible, enclosed location or fixed to be road-worthy.
Junk materials consist of any trash or debris, appliances, furniture and more. Hazardous materials, such as antifreeze, electric batteries and herbicides, that have the potential to cause harm to humans, animals or the environment should be disposed of timely and properly.
A junked vehicle and any material located at a place visible from a public place or right-of-way is detrimental to the safety and welfare of the public, invites vandalism, creates fire hazards and reduces the value of private property. Such items also remove from the beautification of the City which can lead to health and safety concerns of residents and minors.
High weeds and grass
Weeds and grass on private and public property within the City limits cannot be higher than 12-inches tall. Keeping the area clean and cut greatly reduces the risk of snakes, rodents and insects. Unruly grass and weeds also conceal trash, litter and debris. This can be a great risk for the businesses, restaurants and residents that live nearby.
If the City gets a complaint, Hinds will go out to measure the reported weeds or grass. And if it is a violation, the City will send notice to the property owner, giving them some time to mow and come into compliance.
Residents in violation of these ordinances may be fined, per day, until the violation is remedied.
