Costs of blight abatement. Authorizes localities to place a lien on blighted properties repaired or acquired by the locality to recover any accrued unpaid interest on the cost of improvements made by the locality to bring such property in compliance with applicable building codes or the cost of disposing of the property. Currently, localities are authorized to charge simply the costs, but not any accrued unpaid interest thereon, of blight abatement to the property owner. Read the Bill »
