Sec. 6-1-6. Amendments to the Uniform Code for the Abatement of Dangerous Buildings.

The provisions of this section shall constitute local amendments to the cross-referenced provisions of the 1997 Edition of the Uniform Code for the Abatement of Dangerous Buildings and shall be deemed to replace the cross-referenced section in said code with the respective provisions set forth in this section.
(a) Section 201 of the Uniform Code for the Abatement of Dangerous Buildings is amended, by adding at the end of the text of that section, the following new subsections:
“201.4 Authority to Disconnect Utilities. The Building Official or the Building Official’s authorized representative shall have the authority to disconnect a utility service or energy supplied to the building, structure or building equipment therein regulated by this Code, or the City of Woodland’s Building Code, Mechanical Code, Plumbing Code, or Electrical Code, in case of emergency where necessary to eliminate an immediate hazard to life or property. The Building Official shall, whenever possible, notify the serving utility, the owner and occupant of the building, structure or building service equipment of the decision to disconnect prior to taking such action, and shall notify such serving utility, owner and occupant of the building, structure or building service equipment, in writing, of such disconnection immediately thereafter.
201.5  Authority to Condemn Building Service Equipment. When the Building Official ascertains that building service equipment regulated in the City of Woodland’s Building Code, Mechanical Code, Plumbing Code, or Electrical Code has become hazardous to life, health, or property, or has become unsanitary, the Building Official shall order in writing that such equipment either be removed or restored to a safe or sanitary condition, as appropriate. The written notice itself shall fix a time limit of compliance with such order. Defective building service equipment shall not be maintained after receiving such notice.
When such equipment or installation is to be disconnected, a written notice of such disconnection and causes therefore shall be given within 24 hours to the serving utility, the owner, and occupant of such building, structure, or premises.
When any building service equipment is maintained in violation of the City of Woodland’s Building Code, Mechanical Code, Plumbing Code, or Electrical Code, and in violation of a notice issued pursuant to the provisions of this section, the Building Official shall institute appropriate action to prevent, restrain, correct, or abate the violation.
201.6  Connection after Order to Disconnect. Persons shall not make connections from an energy, fuel or power supply nor supply energy or fuel to building service equipment which has been disconnected or ordered to be disconnected by the Building Official or the use of which has been ordered to be discontinued by the Building Official until the Building Official authorizes the reconnection and use of such equipment.”
