It’s Weed Abatement Season


The City’s Weed Abatement Program is governed by the Murrieta Municipal Code, Title 8, Chapter 8.32. Property owners in the City of Murrieta are required to maintain their property in a clean and safe condition throughout the entire year. This responsibility is important during the fire season from March through September to keep our community safe.

If the property is found to be in violation of the Municipal Code, the property owner will be notified by mail to promptly address the violation. If no visible attempt is made to clean-up the property within 15 days, the City will abate the property and bill the property owner for the abatement cost plus an administrative fee of $219.64.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please call Murrieta Fire Department at (951) 304-3473.
