rain were going to have some bad grass Baker said Rainfall so far lias made grass grow tall and thick If that rain continues he said moisture will stay sufficiently high to keep fires to a minimum

grass fire from damaging their own property Baker said If you have a vacant lot near you hopefully the people who own it will have mowed it he said If not its not a bad idea to mow a strip between your property and the lot suf ficient to keep the house When a property owner doesnt mow his lot the best solution is to call the owner up and ask if he would mow his property Baker said Most property owners wouldnt mind if a neighbor called up with a reminder he said The city can step in as a last resort if personal calls dont work Baker said There is a city ordinance that requires property owners keep their grass in a mowed he said Neigh bors can call and complain if grass is too high over two feet Baker said Then well send them a letter requir ing that they take care of he said Residents should try to make neigh borly civil contact to get tall grass mowed before they complain to the city Baker said The last thing you really want is to cause a war among property he said A lot of times people just dont take the time to call the owner and tell them the grass has Targeted HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL vandals left their mark early Sunday morning on the front of the new Target
