Section 17D.060.125 Notification Following Summary Abatement

  1. In case of summary abatement, notice to the responsible party prior to abatement is not required. Within thirty days following the completion of a summary abatement action, the director shall post upon the affected site a notice reciting the address or location of said site, the action taken to abate the nuisance, costs incurred, the parties determined to be responsible for the costs (but this shall not limit any right of recovery against any party by any lawful means), further information by the City, and an explanation of a right of appeal of the findings stated to the City hearing examiner under the procedures of SMC 17D.090.300 within twenty calendar days.
  2. Additional Notification by Mail.

    1. Upon posting of the notice described in subsection (A) above, the director shall cause a notice to be mailed to the owner at the owner’s address as recorded in the County assessment and taxation records for the property. A copy of such notice may also be mailed to the last known address as shown in the public telephone directory or any other means reasonably calculated to give notice. The mailed notice shall include the content described in subsection (A).

    2. An error in the name of the property owner or address listed in the county assessment and taxation records shall not render the notice void, and in such case the posted notice shall be deemed sufficient.
  3. The notices in subsections (A) and (B) of this section must also specify the expiration date for the twentieth day appeal opportunity, which is the twentieth calendar day after the date the notice is posted and mailed unless it be a weekend or a City holiday, in which case, the day shall be the first City business day thereafter.
