The recent rain has also left many yards with overgrown grass and tall weeds. If that sounds like your yard, you want to mow it soon or face a fine from code enforcement.

Tall grass is an eyesore and it can hide mosquitoes or rodents.

Plus, overgrown weeds can make a sidewalk impassable for neighbors. And when it rains, that foliage could even clog up storm drains.

That’s why Code Enforcement is warning property owners that they could receive notice of violations and possibly a fine if the weeds aren’t removed.

So how much money in fines could it be?

And what else could failing to remove this brush mean for you as a property owner?

We’ll have that full story for you this evening on KRIS 6 News.
