Missouri State Senate

Introduced

SB 387 - Under current law, a municipal or county nuisance ordinance must provide notice to the property owner or occupant by personal service or certified mail. This act allows for notice by mail so long as a signature from the recipient is required for delivery.

Current law requires certain orders regarding nuisance properties issued by the building commissioner or other designated officer be certified by the city clerk or officer in charge of finance. This act provides that the building commissioner or other office certifies such orders.

Under this act, the unpaid board-up costs and permit fees and associated administrative costs may be added to the real estate taxes of the property whenever the city, town, village, or county pays to board the property, or the property is secured, repaired, or cleaned without the necessary permits.
