    (a) The notice to abate a nuisance shall be given to the owner, the owner's agent, or person in control of the property on which the nuisance is located by delivering a copy of the notice to abate in person. If the person named in the notice to abate cannot be found after a diligent search, such notice shall be sent by registered or certified mail to the last known address of such person and a copy of the notice to abate shall be posted in a conspicuous place on the premises. Such procedure shall be deemed the equivalent of personal notice.

Such procedure shall be deemed the equivalent of personal notice.
     
    (c) If the owner of property on which a nuisance is located is unknown or has no place of abode, office or place of business in the city, or after reasonable efforts the city cannot locate a last known address, notice shall be given by order of publication, by publishing a copy of the notice in a newspaper of general circulation in the city at least thirty (30) days prior to the abatement of the nuisance and a copy of the notice to abate shall also be posted in a conspicuous place on the premises.
