FBTX ~ Revisions to the City’s property maintenance code, approved by the City Council last week, cleans up language and adds a provision that tree stumps located in front yards must be removed when a tree is cut down.

   In the first update since November of 2014, property maintenance code revisions include:

  • Removal of old or obsolete reference, or references that are addressed in other chapters.
  • Clarification of references that are ambiguous or difficult to enforce.
  • Addition of provisions to require stumps located in front yards to be removed when a tree is cut down. This includes existing stumps that predate the code revisions.

   The property maintenance code revisions become effective October 1.
