Weed Abatement Program

The North Central Fire District manages a proactive Weed Abatement program beginning April 1 and concluding in late summer. Each spring, city staff conducts surveys of all vacant properties within the boundaries of the City of Kerman. Those parcels with weeds, debris and other hazardous materials are listed for abatement action.

The Weed Abatement Program is designed to protect the residential neighborhoods of Kerman. This program is important because tall, dry weeds and debris:

  • Create a potential fire hazard
  • Attract vermin and insects which create a potential health hazard
  • Detract from the overall beauty and desirability of the City of Kerman

The compliance rate by property owners has increased each year. We appreciate your interest and hope the below information helps you understand the City standards for vacant lots and lots with vacant structures.
