15.52.270 Failure to comply with order--lien, special assessments. If the owner or agent fails to comply with the requirement of the Order and Notice of Violation, for a period longer than that named in the Order and Notice of Violation, the Public Officer shall proceed to have the things described in the Order and Notice of Violation removed and abated. If the Public Officer abates or removes the nuisance, the Public Officer shall give notice to the owner or agent by certified mail, return receipt requested, of the total cost of such abatement or removal incurred by the City. Such notice also shall state that payment of such cost is due and payable within 30 days following receipt of such notice. The City also may recover the cost of providing notice, including any postage, required by this section. If the cost of such removal or abatement and notice is not paid within the thirty-day period, the cost shall be collected in the manner provided by K.S.A. 12-1,115, and amendments thereto, or shall be assessed and charged against the lot or parcel of ground on which the nuisance was located. If the cost is to be assessed, the city clerk, at the time of certifying other city taxes to the county clerk, shall certify such costs, and the county clerk shall extend the same on the tax roll of the county against the lot or parcel of ground, and it shall be collected by the county treasurer and paid to the City as other city taxes are collected and paid. The City may pursue collection both by levying a special assessment and in the manner provided by K.S.A. 12-1,115, and amendments thereto, but only until the full cost and any applicable interest has been paid in full.
