FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - The city of Fort Wayne is being a little lax about the city's weed ordinance for now.

That's because not many people have been able to mow their yards with all the rain we've had this spring, including city properties.

A city spokeswoman told FOX 55 the code enforcement won't issue citations if there is standing water in your yard.

If you have been cited and have standing water on your property, you call 311 to work an agreement with the city.
