Weeds, Grass and Rank Growth

Neighbors have asked what are the City's rules on high grass and weeds in our area and who do we call if we have a problem. Here is Title 7, Health Code, Chapter 725 WEEDS AND SOLID WASTE ABATEMENT, specifically 725.06 Weeds, grass and rank growth.
(A) No property owner shall negligently suffer to grow upon the pavements or in the gutters or upon the dedicated portion of the street or alley abutting their property any thistles, burdock, jimson weed, ragweed, milkweed, mullein, poison ivy, poison oak, grass or other weeds of rank growth.

(B) Upon any violation of division (A), the health commissioner may, after due notice has been served upon the property holder pursuant to C.C. 725.04, and the same not having been responded to, proceed to free such pavement, gutter, or dedicated portion of the street from weeds, grass and growths, and report the cost thereof to city council which shall assess the cost of the same against such property pursuant to C.C. 725.05(B).
