Can you tell me who I can contact about a house that has been vacant for at least a year now. I have contacted the Livermore Police and no one has returned my emails. The house has 4 and 5 ft tall dry grass all around it and is a fire trap. Thanks if anyone can give me a contact I would be grateful.

I have contacted neighborhood preservation several times over the years for the same problem. They were always helpful and followed up.
