On or before January 1 of each year, the owner or managing agent, or a duly authorized representative acting on behalf of the owner or managing agent, shall register with the property maintenance official on forms developed by him, the address of any buildings they own or manage which have been vacant for a continuous period of 12 months or more. Every person filing registration forms shall pay an annual registration fee of $25 to defray the cost of processing the registration. A building is "vacant" if it is not occupied in a manner consistent with the purpose for which it was built or typically occupied. For example, a single-family residence used for storage is "vacant."

Any person who fails to register a vacant building by the January 1 deadline shall be subject to a $50 civil penalty.

At least 30 days prior to the assessment of any civil penalty, the property maintenance official shall mail the owner, or managing agent, or the duly authorized representative acting on behalf of the owner or managing agent, at the address to which property tax notices are sent notice of the failure to comply with the registration requirements of this section.
