Lot Mowing & Clearing
Lot Mowing (Undeveloped Lots)
The deed restrictions in Horseshoe Bay require that owners keep their lots "trimmed and cut so that the same shall remain in a neat and attractive condition." Per the City's Health, Sanitation and Litter Ordinance ORD 09-06-16A and Section 3.3B(13) of the 4th Amendment to the Horseshoe Bay Declaration of Reservations tall grass and weeds are prohibited.
Owners have the option to manage their own lot mowing. However, as a service to owners living outside Horseshoe Bay, the City has a lot mowing program in which vacant, undeveloped lots are mowed by a private contractor and the owner of the vacant, undeveloped lot is billed by the City for the costs.
The City mows the undeveloped lots twice a year - in November and June.
The annual cost for mowing twice a year is $130 per vacant, undeveloped lot. Annual invoices are mailed to lot owners in October.
Lot owners with past due balances may be removed from the lot mowing program and will be responsible for their own lot mowing.

Lot Clearing (Undeveloped Lots)
In addition, the City's Health, Sanitation, Trash, and Litter Ordinance ORD 09-06-16A states brush, underbrush, or other vegetation is prohibited that constitutes either a fire safety hazard or which may serve as a habitat for nuisance animals.
Owners have the option to clear their own vacant, undeveloped lot. However, as a service to owners living outside Horseshoe Bay the City has a lot clearing program in which vacant, undeveloped lots are cleared by a private contractor and the owner is billed by the City for the costs.
The costs for clearing a vacant, undeveloped lot can vary greatly depending on the amount of work that needs to be done. This cost can range from $250 - $1000 per vacant, undeveloped lot. Clearing of a vacant, undeveloped lot is something that only needs to be done once as long as the lot is mowed thereafter.
