  Item No. 15.       
Meeting Date: 03/12/2020  
COMMITTEE: N/A  
CONTACT: Mike Mathews CHAIR: N/A

ACTION REQUESTED:
Resolution 20-13 - Weeds - The Resolution shall mandate the cleanup of approximately three (3) separate properties within the City.
BACKGROUND:
Initiated by:  Bill Morris
 
At present, no more efficient means are available to enforce the requirements that property within the City limits be kept clean and orderly.  Citation of property owners requires they be present in Roswell.  Even the citations do not provide for the actual clean up and cannot give the City the right to file a lien for the cleanup expense.  This procedure is cumbersome, but should result in resolution of some more severe situations.
FINANCIAL CONSIDERATION
Adoption of the resolution will probably cause a number of people to voluntarily clean up their property.  Most of the balance will be cleaned up by the City at a cost ranging from $30 to $500 for each property, and liens will be filed and later foreclosed.  A few people may appeal the resolution to Council and a hearing will have to be provided to hear their appeals.  Overall, the resolution should affect rapid cleanup of this season's weeds and other debris, followed by an extended collection period.
LEGAL REVIEW:
The City Attorney has reviewed the current resolution.
BOARD AND COMMITTEE ACTION:
This does not go before a board or committee.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:
Code Enforcement recommends approval of Resolution 20-13.
