Defendant city was not barred from imposing a lien on plaintiff’s property to pay for the cost of abating nuisance caused by absentee landowner plaintiff’s failure to maintain the yard.
This decision upholds a lien that the defendant city imposed on plaintiff’s property to pay for the cost of abating the nuisance on the property. Plaintiff had not maintained the yard and it became overgrown with weeds and filled with trash. There was no merit to plaintiff’s many constitutional and other challenges to the city’s actions and its lien.
