COMMITTEE ACTION: Voted "do pass by consent" by the Committee on
Local Government by a vote of 16 to 0.
This substitute extends from August 28, 2004, to August 28, 2005,
the termination date of Section 82.291, RSMo, regarding removal
of nuisances. The substitute enables Cole and Boone counties to

residential subdivisions. The substitute adds noxious weeds to
the current specified nuisances which Jefferson County is allowed
to abate by ordinances.

ability to abate nuisances.
