Bad Policy
Municipal menaced property that is one acre or less; make certain clarifying revisions regarding. Dead
Analysis: This bill seeks to clean property that has been left vacant or uncared for. Certain provisions allow for the governing authority to have access to the property for 2 years and put a lien against the property for maintenance costs and sell the property. This leaves concerns for abuse or corruption. The state should seek to reduce taxes and regulations that depress local economies, not take care of vacant properties once people leave for better opportunity.
