Mayor found grass two feet tall in one location
September 8, 2023 By Turf & Rec
Mowing less in public green spaces in Olds, Alta. has led to several complaints, council learned at a recent meeting.
The town is mowing every other week and grass is growing taller. Olds’ chief administrative officer told council he believes every one of the complaints is based on the length of grass and not because of other issues.
The complaints were targeted toward parks and trails. Mayor Judy Dahl said she encountered the length of grass first hand at Douglas Place, saying it was about two feet in height.
Council had approved its budget in December, which included the town’s mowing schedule.
