Free Grass Cutting for Seniors – City Governments

The City of Wood Dale has initiated a Senior/Disabled Grass Cutting Program with the purpose of assisting those who need grass cutting services and do not have the means of completing it on their own. The program will be limited based on available funds and will be on a first come, first serve basis.
