April 26, 2013

PUNXSUTAWNEY — In case you haven't looked out the window lately, the grass has been growing in your front and back yards, which means it's time to mow.

It also means that it is time for Mary McHenry, Punxsutawney Borough Code Enforcement Officer, to travel around looking for yards that are not mowed and other code violations.

"We give them more than ample time to get it cut," McHenry said, adding that most of the time, those in violation won't cut it until she sends out the notice.

She said rentals aren't typically too bad if there's a tenant in there.
