City fights with state over state route mowing
Placeholder Image
The Tennessee Department of Transportation has been sent a notice of violation letter by McMinnville’s Planning and Zoning Department for high vegetation along state routes. Current city code limits the height of grass to 12 inches, while some of the grass along state-owned right of ways is several feet tall.“We are trying to keep the grass code-compliant,” said Mayor Jimmy Haley. “Codes sent a code violation letter to TDOT and we have a couple people from TDOT here tonight who want to address this issue.”TDOT representatives Jeremy Price and Lance McDonald were in attendance during a Safety Committee meeting.
