Can the government penalize itself for high grass?

I read a story this week in the paper, where a Garland family had a lien on their home from an unpaid code violation that happened before they moved in.

Also this week, I took a picture of an unkept patch of grass, under an overpass in East Dallas.

So why isn’t this grass cut fully cut? Who gets the citation? City of Dallas? State of Texas? Dallas County? A code violation is a code violation. Enforcing it is another thing.

All know is if I cut the grass like that, my mother would have grounded me!
