To prepare for the upcoming fire season, the Paso Robles Department of Emergency Services would like to remind residents and property owners about the City’s weed abatement program.
This program is designed to keep the City fire-safe by ensuring that yards and larger land parcels are cleared of combustible vegetation and debris. Property within the City must have all weeds mowed, disced, or otherwise removed to lessen fire hazards.
Please clear all combustible vegetation, including dead leaves, weeds, brush, and tree limbs no later than May 1, 2019.
Property owners should also remove excess trash, wood and other combustibles from their property. While May 1st is the deadline, the Department encourages residents to keep properties cleared at all times. Please do your part to minimize the danger to your property and that of your neighbors.
If you have questions about the requirements or need the names of vendors who perform weed abatement and lot cleaning, please call the Department of Emergency Services at (805) 227-7560, or visit our office at 900 Park Street in Paso Robles.
Thank you for helping to make Paso Robles a fire-safe community.
Randy Harris, Battalion Chief / Fire Marshal
