Vacant Lot Owner/Weed Abatement Agreement

ATTENTION VACANT LOT OWNERS – IMMEDIATE ATTENTION REQUIRED

DRY GRASS AND WEEDS CAUSING FIRE HAZARD

The drought conditions and hot weather have taken a toll on the weeds and tall grass on vacant lots, causing an early start to fire season and earlier than usual end to our green rolling hills. During Spring of past years, Copper Valley CSD has notified vacant lot owners of the need to remove grass and weeds and if we didn’t hear from them and the lot was not cleared by Summer, the CSD would simply mow the weeds and send a bill.  Unfortunately, this year the procedure had to become more formal with a written property owner agreement signed to allow the CSD to enter private property to perform the work. 

In an attempt to simplify and expedite the property owner agreement and mowing process, if you own a vacant lot and would like the CSD to mow your vacant lot, we request that you immediately complete the agreement contained in this notice and return by email to: mccutchenconsulting@gmail.com. The fee for the mowing service is $75.00.  Upon submitting the agreement form as soon as possible via email, please mail a check to the Copper Valley CSD at:

CVCSD            PO Box 5158            Sonora, CA 95370

If you have any questions or concerns about the weed abatement process or schedule, please do not hesitate to contact the Site Manager Greg Hebard at 209-768-5678.  Questions or concerns related to the property owner agreement or fee payment should be addressed to Office Manager Nicole McCutchen at mccutchenconsulting@gmail.com.

We will be conducting a public hearing to take input on the adoption of a final budget for the 2021/22 fiscal year, as well as discussing the procedures for our annual weed abatement program on easements and vacant lots. We hope to see you there!

Peter Kampa, General Manager

Letter Regarding Mowing Weeds

Each spring the Copper Valley CSD sends letters to the owners of vacant lots in our community, requesting that the grass and weeds on their lot be cut down for the purpose of reducing fire hazards. Unfortunately the letter intended for vacant lot owners was sent to all property owners in Copper Valley; both developed and undeveloped properties. If you do not own a vacant parcel, the letter you received does not apply.

We very much apologize for the confusion and hope to have any tall grass cut down on vacant parcels as soon as possible. If you do own a vacant parcel, please have the grass/weeds removed ASAP or return the form to authorize the CSD to remove the weeds and bill for the service. PLEASE be fire safe with any removal of dried grass and DO NOT use power mowing equipment that can cause sparks and fire! We appreciate your understanding.

Respectfully,

Peter Kampa, General Manager
