Chapter 11 HEALTH AND SANITATION*
Section 11-242 Collection of abatement costs.
(a) The director shall certify the cost of abatement to the
city clerk. The cost shall include
administrative costs as well as the actual cost of abating the nuisance. The city clerk shall
a special taxbill against the property to be prepared in the amount of the abatement costs. The
taxbill from the date of its issuance shall be a lien on the property until paid and shall be prima
facie evidence of the recitals therein and of its validity. No clerical error or informality in
taxbill or in the proceedings leading up to the issuance of the taxbill shall be a defense in an
action to collect the taxbill. Taxbills issued under this section, if not paid when due, shall
interest at the rate of eight percent (8%) per annum.
(b) The cost of abatement shall also constitute a personal
obligation of the owner of the
property and of any other person who caused the nuisance.
