ALBANY, La (WVLA) --Overgrown lawns are sprouting up in the village of Albany in Livingston Parish.
Officials in the Livingston Parish village say, the tall grass is not only a public nuisance, it's a crime.
And they're ready to enforce it.
Village police will be keeping a close eye on the unweildy weeds.
The main targets are empty fields left unkempt by owners.
If the grass gets above eight inches, the resident gets a letter.
From there, unruly land owners could face a fine of up to $500 or up to 60 days in jail.
