§ 155.05  REGISTRY INFORMATION REQUIREMENTS.
   (A)   Required information. Owners of vacant properties required to register their properties pursuant to this article shall submit a completed vacant property registration form, as provided by the city or its designee containing the following information:
      (1)   The name of the owner of the property.
      (2)   A mailing address where mail may be sent that will be acknowledged as received by the owner. If certified mail/return receipt requested is sent to the address and the mail is returned marked “refused” or “unclaimed,” or if ordinary mail sent to the address is returned for whatever reason, then such occurrence shall be prima facie proof that the owner has failed to comply with this requirement.
      (3)   The name of an individual responsible for the care and control of the property. Such individual may be the owner, if the owner is an individual, or may be someone other than the owner with whom they have contracted.
      (4)   A current address, phone number, fax, and email address (if fax and email addresses are available) where communications may be sent that will be acknowledged as received by the owner or individual responsible for the care and control of the property. If certified mail/return receipt requested is sent to the address and the mail is returned marked “refused” or “unclaimed,” or if ordinary mail sent to the address is returned for whatever reason, then such occurrence shall be prima facie proof that the owner has failed to comply with this requirement.
      (5)   An acknowledgment that property subject to this chapter that is left open and/or accessible shall be subject to entry by the city in order to ensure that the property has not become an attractive nuisance and to ensure that the property is locked and/or secured.
   (B)   Required information update. If at any time the information contained in the registration form is no longer valid, the property owner shall within ten days file a new registration form containing current information. There shall be no fee to update the current owner's information.
   (C)   Removal of occupied property from registry. Prior to reoccupation of property that is subject to this article, the owner shall notify the city or its designee that the property has been sold or rented, and to whom. There shall be no fee to remove a property from the registry.
