Well now, it would seem that my earlier thoughts on this stupidity came true, as Virginia has decided that as far as budget cuts go, lawn mowing is low hanging fruit.
To get this straight, if you live in one of the mentioned counties and you let your grass get too tall, the county now won't send "its agents or employees" to cut it for you because they aren't funded, but they will ask you to volunteer to do it for free! Awesome! Glad we cleared that up.
I'm sure they will still add the $100 fine, but I wonder if they will charge you "the cost and expenses . . . chargeable to and paid by the owner of such property and may be collected by the county as taxes and levies are collected?"
To that I say: Bring It On Bitches!!!!
My suburban kingdom is chock full of foreclosed on houses, which means the county has to cut all that grass as they are the title holder. If they can't even afford to pay govt' employees to do the key task in order to extort your hard earned Federal Reserve Notes via statutory fiat, they sure as hell can't afford to be penalized by John Q. Public for the same crime.
Let he who is free from sin cast the first stone. I wait patiently!
