Vacant Building Registration

Vacant Building Registration

4-7-1: Purpose and Findings

The City of St. Francis is enacting this section to protect the public health, safety and welfare by establishing a program for the identification and regulation of vacant buildings. The City finds that vacant buildings are a major cause and source of blight in residential and non-residential neighborhoods. Neglect of vacant buildings, as well as use of vacant buildings by transients and criminals creates a risk of fire, explosion or flooding for the vacant building and adjacent properties. There is a substantial cost to the City for monitoring vacant buildings. This cost should not be borne by the general taxpayers of the community; but, rather, these costs should be borne by owners of the buildings.
