Teenagers have been threatened by officials and other lawn services
to show their city issued license before cutting a person's lawn for
extra summer cash.
grass is often one of the first jobs many have in the summer. But a
business license in Gardendale costs $110. And for a job, just for a
couple of months, that can be a bit extreme.
"I have never heard of a child cutting grass had to have a business license," said Elton Campbell.
Campbell's granddaughter cuts grass around the neighborhood.
"She charges one lady $20, and another lady $30, and another girl $40 besides what we pay her," said Campbell.
