Legislative Counsel's Digest: Under existing law, if an owner of property fails to abate a dangerous or noxious condition, a chronic nuisance or, in a city in larger counties, an abandoned nuisance on the property after being directed to do so, the owner may be required to pay civil penalties as well as any costs incurred by the city or county, as applicable, to abate the condition or nuisance. In addition to any other reasonable means of recovering those costs and penalties, the city or county, as applicable, is authorized to make the costs and penalties a special assessment against the property and collect the special assessment in the same manner as ordinary county taxes are collected. However, before a special assessment for civil penalties may be imposed, existing law requires that 12 months must have elapsed after the final date specified for the abatement of the condition or nuisance. (NRS 244.3603, 244.3605, 268.4122-268.4126) This bill provides that a special assessment for the costs of abatement and civil penalties may be imposed by a designee of the governing body of a city or the board of county commissioners, as applicable. If a special assessment is imposed by a designee of the governing body or the board, the bill requires that the designee periodically report certain information about each such assessment to the governing body or the board. The bill also shortens in some cases, from 12 months to 180 days, the length of time that must elapse before a special assessment for civil penalties may be imposed.
