Q Is a municipality required to give notice by U.S. mail to the physical address of a subject property and to the address that the ad valorem tax notice is sent when exercising the authority to clean property that is a menace to public health and welfare under Section 21-19-11?

A Yes. A municipality must mail the notice to both the physical address of the subject property and the address where the ad valorem tax notice is sent, regardless of its expectation that the notice will be returned as undeliverable. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Turnage dated October 29, 2010)
