FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The city of Fort Wayne is relaunched its tall grass and weed program once again.

Neighborhood Code Enforcement enforces the weedordinance, which requires weeds and grass to be less than nine inches tall.

This year, weed inspectors will be using a new app to help them inspect more complaints.

City leaders said typically, inspectors spend about 1.5 hours doing paperwork.

Now, they can do it in the field, helping make them more productive.

"It will allow our weed inspectors to respond to more calls from the public, maybe to do more education when they are out in the public. Sometimes, especially in the beginning of the season, we get a lot of calls," said Mary Tyndall, spokeswoman for community development.

You can file a complaint by calling 3-1-1 or filling out the form on the city's website.
