CHAPTER 6. BUILDING CODES.*
Article I. In General.
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
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.”
