Canton, Ohio (AP) They take their grass-cutting very seriously in Canton, Ohio.

So seriously that homeowners who don't mow their lawns face a stiff fine, even jail time in some cases.

The city council has decided to get tougher by increasing the maximum fine for failing to cut the grass from $150 to $250. And they've also added up to 30 days behind bars if a violator is particularly bad.

Mayor William Healy says it's the type of action needed “in order to clean up our neighborhoods and our city.”

The new law takes effect in 30 days
