The Board of Supervisors makes the following findings and declarations:
The accumulation of combustible vegetation, dead, dying or diseased trees, green waste, rubbish, and other materials on private property is hereby found to create a condition that is a fire hazard and potentially injurious to the health, safety, and general welfare of the public. Therefore, the presence of such combustible vegetation, dead, dying or diseased trees, green waste, rubbish, and other materials on parcels as hereinafter defined is hereby declared to constitute a public nuisance which may be abated in accordance with the provisions of this chapter. Nothing in this chapter shall replace or conflict with the authority of the County Agricultural Commissioner to eradicate noxious weeds under applicable sections of the California Food and Agricultural Code.
