All complaints regarding weed abatement should be completed using this form. Once the form is processed and reviewed by a fire inspector, an on-site inspection of the parcel will be conducted. All weed violations must be visible from the street. Due to laws prohibiting illegal searches, the Petaluma Fire Department and Fire Preventions Buereau cannot climb fences or enter a property via the backyard to confirm weed complaints. After an inspection, if a site is deemed to be a fire hazard, the Fire Prevention bureau will require the owner to take appropriate actions to mitigate the hazard.
If you have any questions, please contact our office at 707-778-4389 (phone) or 707-206-6036 (fax).
