HAZLETON, Pa. -- There is a new way to report code violations in Hazleton.
The mayor and the city's code enforcement office set up two email addresses and a phone line this week for people to report potholes and high grass.
The city's code enforcement officer says that when his office gets a report, he will try to contact the homeowner by phone and then send a letter.
People are hoping the city is lenient on fines.
"Long grass and things of that nature, it happens. I just think people should be warned before any action is taken because some of our families just don't have a lot of money," said Hazleton resident Joe Veach.
