Under the registration program, the owner of a vacant building would pay a $50 fee upon registration no later than 30 days after it becomes vacant. If the building remains vacant for more than 90 days, the city code enforcement office would conduct inspections on the property and the owner would be assessed a $750 fee to pay for them. If the owner ignores the registration program, the owner would be assessed a $500 penalty and face possible prosecution in Watertown City Court.
