City Weed and Grass Program In Effect05/27/2022 Fort Wayne’s weed and grass program began yesterday. Neighborhood Code Compliance is the department in charge of ensuring weeds and grass in lawns are no longer than nine inches tall. When Inspectors determine there is a violation, they take date-stamped electronic photos and post a placard on the cited property. As a courtesy, an abate notice is mailed to the owner of record who then has five days to correct the violation. After five days, the City’s mowing contractors will inspect to see if the property is in compliance and if not, they will mow and also take date-stamped before- and after-photos. The owner will then be charged for the mowing. To report a possible violation, the public should call 311 or 260-427-8311.
