The City of North Mankato will be observing “No Mow May,” an initiative encouraging property owners to limit mowing grass for one month to promote habitats for early season pollinators that emerge in the spring. The City Council approved a resolution proclaiming No Mow May in North Mankato at their May 2nd City Council Meeting.
Beginning Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022, and ending Tuesday, May 31st, 2022, the City will temporarily suspend part of City ordinance (§ 90.111) that requires homeowners to maintain grass on their property to less than 6 inches tall. Residential properties that are owner-occupied or occupied by renters who receive landlord consent are eligible to register and participate. Noxious weeds will still need to be eradicated. Properties must come back into compliance in June following the end of the program.
Residents interested in participating in the program need to register online at the City’s website at www.northmankato.com/no-mow-may or call City Hall at 507-625-4141.
