A. If the City Council determines that the proposed lien shall become a lien, it may also cause a notice of lien to be recorded. This lien shall attach upon recordation in the office of the County Recorder of the county in which the property is situated and shall have the same force, priority, and effect as a judgment lien, not a tax lien.

B. The notice shall, at a minimum, identify the record owner or possessor of the property, set forth in the last known address of the record owner or possessor, set forth the date upon which the lien was created against the property, and include a description of the real property subject to the lien and the amount of the lien.

C. The notice shall be served by any means reasonably calculated to provide actual notice, including but not limited to first class mail, fax or personal delivery. If the owner of record, after diligent search cannot be found, then notice may be served by posting a copy thereof in a conspicuous place upon the property for a period of ten days and publication thereof in a newspaper of general circulation published in the county in which the property is located pursuant to Government Code Section 6062.

D. A nuisance abatement lien may be foreclosed by an action brought by the City.

E. The City may recover from the property owner all costs incurred regarding the processing and recording of the lien and providing notice to the property owner as part of its foreclosure action to enforce the lien. (Ord. 6530-NS § 9, 2000: Ord. 6156-NS § 19, 1992)
