What happens when the house next door is in foreclosure and the weeds are over 2 feet high?
When the Environmental Code Enforcement officer (ECEO) finds a foreclosed property in violation of the weed ordinance, extra steps are involved in locating the responsible person or entity for abatement. Sometimes the property is in a "right of redemption" stage wherein the bank does not yet legally own it and the owner of record is nowhere to be found. In order to save taxpayer dollars, the ECEO conducts additional research to locate the appropriate party for the mortgage company so that they take responsibility for maintaining and mowing the foreclosed property. If a responsible party is not located, the city will arrange for the property to be mowed and assess the property for associated costs.
