City of Mayfield Heights v. Barry
Citation:2003 WL 21757738 (Ohio. Ct. App. 2003)
Defendant-appellant Denver Barry owns a home in Mayfield Heights on S.O.M. Center Road. His home is situated on a large, deep lot and sits approximately 800 feet from the road. In response to two citizen complaints, a building inspector for the city visited the appellant’s property and noticed overgrowth in his back yard, in violation of the municipal code. The city sent a letter to the appellant instructing the appellant to cut his grass and eliminate the grass growing in between the stones in his front yard. According to the appellant, the wet conditions in the rear of his yard made it impossible to cut. The city issued a citation to the appellant for non-compliance.
