1. If a board of county commissioners determines that a nuisance or other condition described in NRS 244.3601, 244.3603 or 244.3605 requires the relocation of tenants, the board may arrange for the relocation of the tenants and may, in accordance with subsection 2, recover the cost of such relocation from the person determined by the board to be primarily responsible for creating the nuisance or other condition that required the relocation of the tenants.

2. Before a board of county commissioners recovers from a person the cost of relocating tenants, the board shall:

(a) Send notice, by certified mail, return receipt requested, to the person from whom the board seeks to recover the cost of the relocation, setting forth the date by which the person must remit payment to the county;  and

(b) Afford the person from whom the board seeks to recover the cost of the relocation an opportunity for a hearing before the designee of the board and an appeal of that decision to the board.

The date specified in the notice by which the person must remit payment to the county is tolled for the period during which the person requests a hearing and receives a decision.

3. If a person appeals the decision of the designee to the board as described in paragraph (b) of subsection 2 and is aggrieved by the determination of the board, the person may, within 30 days after the making of the determination, appeal to the district court of the county.  A judicial review authorized pursuant to this subsection must be limited to whether the determination was arbitrary, capricious or otherwise characterized by an abuse of discretion and must be conducted in accordance with the procedures set forth in chapter 233B of NRS for reviewing a final decision of an agency.
