A. The abatement official is authorized to notify the responsible party of a violation of HBC 8.08.020 and to require the correction or abatement of the violation by said party. The notice shall specify the violation and required abatement or corrective action and shall be given by certified mail, addressed to the responsible party at the party’s reasonably ascertainable last known address.

C. The cost of such action taken by the abatement official under subsection (B) of this section, including process fees and incidental administrative costs, shall be charged to the responsible party and shall be due and payable within 30 days of the completion of the action, with interest accruing at a rate of 12 percent per year, until paid in full.
