I would strongly suggest sending your neighbors a certified letter stating that, per your earlier conversation, you consider this tree to be a hazard due to its proximity to the power lines. Then, when and if something bad does happen, you will have a record of having informed them of it and they won't be able to say "we didn't know."
You say the county has told you it is the neighbor's problem. Did you contact the local electric company? They should care very much about the situation.
I would also recommend taking lots of pictures showing the proximity of the tree to the wires and that it is obviously dead.
Dead trees do sometimes stay vertical for a very long time, but it sounds like a tense situation for you. I understand your desire to not inflame the situation, but it doesn't sound like there is anything more you can do that won't have the potential to do so. So it becomes your responsibility to look after your own interests in the most reasonable way possible.
For my money, never ? I do a walk-around yearly in the summer (when easy to work on and before the heavy fall winds in our area) and look for trees with dead crowns, losing branches everywhere but at the crown, brown branches (evergreens) or leafless branches, leaning trees, trees with visible rot, trees with major bark loss, trees with seriously damaged or eroded away roots, etc. If none of those symptoms, then I call our 100 or so trees good for the year.
Of course, the bigger the trees and the likelihood of house damageor powerline loss (especially in winter) if there is a major branch or tree fall comes into play also. I trim and cut my own trees when needed regardless of size, so my level of confidence in being able to handle anything comes into it.
If you are worried about one or more trees, call an arborist to check them out - then I would say unless there is evidence of damage - ESPECIALLY leaning trees or major branches not leafing like the rest of the tree - I would not worry having them looked at more frequently than every 10 years or so.

He brought the crew out again a few weeks later to trim our huge, overgrown olive trees, other large trees and remove some that were dying. Again, the work went rapidly, smoothly, and cleanly. We were very pleased with all the work done.
His pricing is very fair and he also gave us a 10% senior discount that we didn’t even realize was available. We’ve had work done by other tree companies, but we’ll contact him from now on whenever we need tree care and will continue to recommend him without reservation.
The contractor purchased a special rope specifically for lifting the lower sections of the huge tree onto a truck. They were amazing to watch.
We were very sad to see the large 120+-year-old tree go, but are very satisfied with the removal work. The contractor worked within the quote and estimated time of two days for the work on all four trees.

He promised to try to work me into the schedule the following week if he possibly could. I got a call from him on Wednesday the next week and I was scheduled for that Friday at 11:00. I had mentioned that I needed some firewood and he told me that as he was bringing trucks to the house anyway if I wanted a load there would be no delivery charge. He and his crew arrived at 10:55 with a convoy of vehicles that lined my street. Within a few hours they had cut down a good sized Locust in my front yard, split and stacked that wood along with the seasoned firewood he had brought. The next hour saw all of the shrubs removed and chipped up. They then ground out the stumps to allow me to replant without wrestling the old roots and while he was at it, removed some huge tree roots that made for a tripping hazard in my lawn. They then set to work to clean up the yard. It was outstanding. When they pulled out of my street at a little after 5:00 you would never have known I had had tree work done. They even fluffed up the grass where the equipment had mashed it down. I have had tree work done at homes in both Upstate New
