||Modifies the law relating to lead abatement
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).
