The city, through its City Attorney, may also initiate a summary closure proceeding in the Kenton County District and/or Circuit Court.  Such an action shall be based on evidence showing that nuisance activities exist or have occurred on the property and that action is necessary to avoid a threat to public welfare and safety. Proceedings to obtain an order of summary closure shall be governed by the provisions of applicable Kentucky law for obtaining temporary restraining orders. In the event of summary closure, the city is not required to comply with the notification procedures set forth in § 92.17(A)(3).  As part of any summary closure order, the district/circuit court may also revoke or suspend the occupational license of any person conducting any business upon the property where the chronic nuisance exists.
