CITY OF GOODYEAR: DON'T LET WEEDS WIN! Here's how to keep Goodyear looking beautiful

Local Government

Feb 23, 2020


City of Goodyear issued the following announcement on Feb. 20

Spring is already creeping up on us – and unfortunately, that means weeds are, too.

“As Goodyear continues to grow, it’s important that we do all we can to keep our city looking beautiful,” said Goodyear Code Compliance Officer Lupe Laborin-Romero. “We do our best to educate residents on how they can help us achieve that.”

Weeds can take over your yard before you know it. That’s why it’s a good idea to take preventative measures, such as pulling out the roots when weeds are small, and using a liquid weed killer. These kinds of liquids, including eco-friendly options, are available at most home-improvement stores.

In Goodyear, weeds and grass should remain under six inches high, and properties should be maintained free of dead vegetation and shrub overgrowth. Property owners are responsible for any weed growth from the curb up, on sidewalks and in alley ways adjacent to their property.

City code compliance will provide residents with up two code advisories within a 24-month period, including information on some of the most common violations seen in the city. A third notice will result in a citation without further notices, a day in court and possible fine.

If you see out-of-control weeds growing in Goodyear, you have several ways to let city officials know. The easiest way is by downloading the City of Goodyear app. When you open the app, tap “Report a Problem,” then scroll down and tap "Code Compliance and Nuisances," and then "Overgrown Weeds on Private Property." You will then be able to enter a street address to let the city know where the weeds are located.

If you see weeds alongside a road or in a median, go to "Report a Problem," then "Right-of-Way & Median Landscaping" and "Weeds on Median or in Right-of-Way."

You also click "Report a Problem" on the GoodyearAZ.gov home page, or call Goodyear Code Compliance at 623.882.7815.
