Current Bill Summary

SB 608 - This act allows a local health or building official to petition the circuit court for an order to enter the premises and conduct an abatement if the property owner does not abate the property in a certain amount of time. Upon approval of the court to enter the property for abatement purposes, the local health or building official may abate the lead hazard and charge the costs of abating to the property owner. A lien may be placed on the property and a special tax bill may be issued for the collection of court costs and the costs of the abatement.

The governing body of St. Louis may issue fines and penalties for failing to abate the lead hazard.

This act is similar to SB 1261 (2002).
