A resolution requesting that the Metropolitan Department of Codes Administration prepare, and the Office of the Trustee distribute, a flyer advising non-mortgaged homeowners of the most common Property Standards and Zoning Codes violations.
WHEREAS, in the course of real property tax collections required by Section 8.116 of the Metropolitan Charter, the Office of the Trustee annually distributes property tax statements to property owners; and
WHEREAS, property tax statements for mortgaged properties are mailed to the mortgage holder, and statements for non-mortgaged properties are mailed directly to the property owner; and

Section 1. That the members of the Metropolitan Council hereby request that the Metropolitan Department of Codes Administration prepare a flyer, similar to the attached exhibit, advising homeowners of common violations of Property Standards and Zoning Codes.
