Summer Season High Grass Complaints - One of the most common issues residents have during the summer season is high grass on properties in their neighborhood. High grass can lead to a host of other problems so the sooner the township knows about these violations the better.  Submit an issue with the Township's official app, GoTo Muhlenberg or call customer service at 610-929-4727. These issues can take several days to address and we appreciate your patience while we follow the proper legal channels when addressing high grass and unkempt properties. A typical high grass/unkempt property issue usually has the following steps:

• Complaint is placed with township via the Go to Muhlenberg APP, customer service or on the street from resident . All complaints are Recorded on the GoTo APP for accurate record keeping.
• Complaint is validated by the assigned inspector typically within 24 hours- 48 hours. Based on the volume of complaints received and order received. Inspector updates APP.
• Inspector posts 3 day notice during typical conditions. 
• Inspector mails violation notice on the same day the property is posted.
• Inspector rechecks the property within 5 days .
• Inspector clears complaint , updates app or a non-compliant complaint is sent to Parks for a necessary cutting.
• Two time non-compliant complaints citations are issued.

As you can see, this process takes several days and many steps must be followed before the Township can enter private property and take care of overgrown yards and high grass.  We appreciate your understanding and want our residents to know that we take issues like this very seriously and want them taken care of in the shortest time permitted by law.
