CITY CODE CHAPTER 9.55
The City Council of the City of Alexandria does ORDAIN:
SECTION I. That Section 9.55, Subdivisions 7 A and B of the Alexandria City Code are hereby amended by deleting the existing wording and replacing it with the following:
Subd. 7. Enforcement.
A. The City shall determine that conditions exist which may violate this section. Upon identification of a violation, notice shall be served upon the property owner or responsible party as provided herein. Said notice shall identify the nature of the nuisance and the violation of this section, and it shall specify an abatement deadline which shall be determined by the enforcement officer and which shall allow for a reasonable amount of time for abatement, and it shall order the property owner or responsible party to abate the nuisance within the specified time. Upon receipt or posting of said notice, the property owner shall abate the nuisance within the time specified in the notice. For the purposes of this Ordinance, when service of a notice is required, any one (1) or more of the following methods of service upon the property owner or responsible party shall be adequate:
1. By personal service; or
2. By certified mail via the United States Postal Service; or
3. If the appropriate party or mailing address cannot be determined after reasonable effort, or if the notice sent by certified mail is returned undelivered, or if the nature of the nuisance is such that the delay resulting from personal service or service by mail would unreasonably delay abatement of the nuisance, by posting a copy of the notice in a conspicuous place on the property, in which case the notice shall also state the date on which it was posted.
B. The property owner or responsible party may appeal said order to the Alexandria City Council, provided that any appeal must be submitted in writing to the City Administrator for the City of Alexandria no later than the time for abatement specified in the notice or ten (10) days following receipt of the violation notice, whichever is sooner.
SECTION II. This Ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after its passage and publication.
