DISCUSSION OF ANNUAL FIRE ABATEMENT PROCESS <br />Karen Jost, member of the Los Altos County Fire Protection Commission, <br />addressed the Council giving an historical overview of the manner in which <br />weed abatement was currently being handled. This process involved the <br />intial contact by the Los Altos Fire Chief to the residents concerning weed <br />abatement and the subsequent placement of weed abatement charges on their <br />property tax bills if they chose to have the Town do the weed abatement. Jost <br />then explained the weed abatement program offered by the County, noting <br />that it was extremely efficient and cost-effective. She addressed the process of <br />declaring the weeds a nuisance, sending notices to the property owners, <br />abating the nuisance and holding hearings. Jost stated that one of the reasons <br />the County's program was so cost-effective was because of the volume of their <br />weed abatement projects and the resulting good bids they were able to obtain. <br />July 20, 1994 <br />Adjourned Regular Meeting <br />
