Shelby has a weed ordinance that mandates ALL vegetation on your property be kept under 6 inches. We're talking half a foot here. IF your vegetation is in EXCESS, you'll be in violation of the ordinance. Trees, hedges & bushes at intersections must be no higher than 2 & a half feet within 30 feet of the street corner. Ugly weeds & vegetation are a continued problem here in Small Town, USA, & Shelby City Council desires to eliminate this annual problem. I "think" we'll have "Victory Here Yet" if everyone cooperates & does their level best. If you FAIL to comply with the weed ordinance, the city crews will be dispatched to mow weeds on your property WITHOUT notice! Check out our weed ordinance at:, & then do your part.
