City reminds homeowners to keep properties fire-safe 

To prepare for the upcoming fire season, the Paso Robles Department of Emergency Services is reminding property owners about the city’s weed abatement program.Weed abatement

The program is designed to keep the city fire-safe by ensuring that yards and larger land parcels are cleared of combustible weeds and debris.

The department asks that property owners clear lots of all combustible vegetation, including dead leaves, weeds, brush, and tree limbs no later than June 1. Property within the city must have all weeds mowed, disced, or otherwise removed to lessen fire hazards. Property owners should also remove excess trash, wood, and other combustibles from their property.

Because this is an especially dry year, while June 1 is the deadline, the department encourages residents to make sure that properties are kept clear at all times.

If you have questions about the requirements or need the names of contractors who perform weed abatement and lot cleaning, please call (805) 227-7560.
