With warm weather here, residents reminded of code violations

May 13, 2012

PUNXSUTAWNEY — It's that time of year to dust off the lawnmowers and cut the grass — and property owners who don't will be hearing from Punxsutawney code enforcement officer Mary McHenry.

"The lawn mowing season began a little bit earlier than last year with the warm weather back in March, which has caused grass mowing violations to start early,” McHenry said.

Many people have mowed their grass a couple of times already, which causes those who haven't to stick out.
