Under current law, a municipality may levy a lien against real
property for costs associated with removing weeds, brush, and other
rubbish from the property. The lien has priority over other liens, except
liens for general taxes and prior special assessments imposed by a
municipality. After a foreclosure action is initiated for unpaid property
taxes, a person may obtain a treasurer's deed, which provides a purchaser
title to real property that is free and clear of most prior encumbrances,
including liens, if certain conditions are met. The bill specifies that a
municipal lien for the costs of removing weeds, brush, and other rubbish
survives the issuance of a treasurer's deed.
