Weed Abatement Program Underway

Owners of vacant lots will be receiving notices of Weed Abatement Correction this month, for any parcels they own within the Aptos/La Selva Fire Protection District. If you are one of these recipients, it is imperative that you respond to this mailer as soon as possible, stating your preference to either abate the weeds privately or have the District contractor perform the cutting service. If weeds are not cleared by the deadline stated on the notice (June 1st), our contractor will perform the abatement and the property owner will be billed accordingly. A list of licensed weed abatement contractors is available at the link below. For questions regarding our Weed Abatement program, visit our Weed Abatement page or call our Administration Office at 831-685-6690.
