The house next door is vacant and the grass hasn't been mowed for some time, can anything be done?

Yes. Our city ordinance states that grass and weeds over 8 inches high are declared to be a nuisance and must be cut. Noxious vegetation of any height is strictly prohibited. The owner of the property is sent a notice to mow and eradicate any noxious weeds.
