The Atherton Police Department would like to remind all residents that in order to maintain compliance with the Shelter in Place Order, all hired landscaping or yard services are prohibited.
The only allowable form of landscaping will be that work performed by the homeowner or resident.
Please remember that the goal of these hired yard maintenance restrictions is to ensure the Town of Atherton maintains compliance with the State of California and San Mateo County Shelter in Place Health Orders.
Failure to comply with the provisions of the San Mateo County Shelter in Place Health Order is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both, and could also be a violation of the Town of Atherton’s Municipal Code.
Please note that the focus of enforcement will be on the homeowner or resident, not the landscaping crew. Help keep all of us safe by adhering to the Health Orders, as they are for our collective wellbeing.
