A Winnipeg man who refuses to cut the grass on a boulevard near his home might not get his day in court until next summer.

The City of Winnipeg charged Richard Hykawy for not cutting the grass on his Island Lakes boulevard.

Hykawy pleaded not guilty in a bylaw courtroom Thursday. He says his rights are being abused, arguing the city owns the boulevard and should be responsible for mowing that part of the lawn.

His case was put over until June of next year in the bylaw court.

Hykawy says the judge told him he may have to file a motion in a different court if he plans to argue his charter rights were violated.
