[HISTORY: Adopted by the Town Council of the Town of Stanley 10-10-1973 as Secs. 7-3 and 7-5 of the 1973 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Owners, occupants and persons in charge of lots and premises within the Town shall, at such time or times as the Town Council may by resolution or order prescribe, remove therefrom any and all trash, garbage, refuse, litter and other substances and liquids which might endanger the health or safety of persons or constitute a menace towards starting or spreading fire or afford a breeding place for insects, rodents or reptiles.
Whenever deemed necessary by the Town Council, after reasonable notice, the Council may have such trash, garbage, refuse, litter and other like substances and liquids mentioned in § 146-1 removed by the Town's agents or employees, in which event the cost or expenses thereof shall be chargeable to and paid by the owner of such property and may be collected by the Town as taxes and levies are collected.
Prior to the Town's taking the action described in Subsection A above, it shall give notice in writing to the owner, occupant or person in charge, which written notice shall include a concise statement of the reasons for its issuance. Such notice shall be deemed to be properly and sufficiently served if a copy thereof is sent by regular mail to the last known address of the person or entity upon which the same is served, as shown by the most recent tax records of the Town, or if a copy thereof is delivered to said person or persons or if a copy thereof is left at the usual place of abode or office of said person or entities. Notice shall be given as aforesaid within or without the Town. The notice shall also state that unless the violation is abated, removed, cured, prevented or discontinued within 30 days of the date of service of such notice (exclusive of the date of service), a summons may be issued for such violation or the Town may take the actions deemed necessary as provided in Subsection A above.
Every charge authorized by § 146-2 with which the owner of any such property shall have been assessed and which remains unpaid shall constitute a lien against such property.
