Section 11-67-6

Entry of municipal employees and agents on property to abate nuisance; abatement by private contractor; right of owner to have weeds removed at own expense.

After the council passes the resolution finding the conditions of the property to be a nuisance and ordering its abatement, all employees and duly authorized agents of the Class 2 municipality are hereby expressly authorized to enter upon private property for that purpose.

The city may at its option authorize private contractors, companies, enterprises, or individuals to abate and remove said nuisance. The council, by resolution, shall designate the contractors, companies, enterprises, or individuals who may perform said work. Those persons so designated are hereby authorized to enter upon private property for purposes of abating or removing said nuisance. For purposes of this article compliance with the competitive bid law is not required.

Any property owner shall have the right to have any such weeds removed at his own expense providing the same is done prior to the commencing of the work by the employees or agents of said municipality to do the same.
