A. Required Nuisance Abatement. The owner or occupant of any property in the city of Maywood Park shall remove/abate any nuisance from such property within 30 days of the notification from the city of a nuisance.

B. Notification.

1. Whenever the manager determines that a nuisance exists on any property in the city of Maywood Park, the manager may issue an abatement notice.

2. The manager shall cause the notice to be served upon the property owner and any occupant. The owner or occupant shall have 30 days after the date of service of the notice in which to abate the nuisance. The nuisance abatement manager shall have the sole discretion to grant the property owner the option of giving the city of Maywood Park written permission to enter on the property and abate the nuisance.

3. Service shall be accomplished by addressing the notice to the owner and occupant and sending it by personal service, registered mail, or certified mail. Service on the occupant may also be accomplished by posting the notice in a clearly visible location on the subject property.

4. If the nuisance is not abated or written permission is not given to the city of Maywood Park to abate, the costs of removal may be assessed to the owner and will become a lien on the affected property. For each instance of nuisance abatement, the manager shall keep an accurate account of all expenses incurred, including an overhead charge of 25 percent for program administration and a civil penalty of $1,000 for each day that the nuisance is not abated. In the event that the measures taken are deemed by the code hearings officer to be appropriate, the cost for the same may be made as an assessment lien upon the property. [Ord. 2009-6 § 6, 2009.]
