2023 Regular Session

Bill Summary

The law allows a municipality to levy a lien against real property for costs associated with removing weeds, brush, and other rubbish from the property. Such a lien has priority over other liens, except liens for general taxes and prior special assessments imposed by a municipality. A municipal clerk may certify such a lien to a county treasurer for collection. The act requires a county treasurer to accept such a municipal lien for collection if a municipality records a notice of lien within 4 months of abating the nuisance and certifies the amount of the unpaid assessment for which the lien was levied to the county treasurer within one year of recording the notice of lien.
