(a)   In addition to any other rights provided by law, the Town may also institute a civil action in Circuit Court against the landowner or other responsible party to get an order to take corrective action up to and including demolition of any structure, dwelling or building that is unsafe, unsanitary, dangerous or detrimental to the public safety or welfare; and to recover all reasonable costs and expenses incurred by the Town with respect to the property and for reasonable attorney fees and court costs incurred in the prosecution of the action.
   (b)   No fewer than ten days before instituting a civil action as provided in this section, the Town shall send notice to the landowner by certified mail, return receipt requested advising the landowner of the governing body’s intention to institute such action.
   (c)   The notice shall be sent to the most recent address of the landowner of record in the Office of the Fayette County Assessor and to any other address for the landowner as may exist on record with the Town.  If, for any reason, such certified mail is returned without evidence of proper receipt, the Town shall resend the notice(s) by first class mail, postage prepaid, and shall also post notice on the front door or other conspicuous location on the subject property.
