Sec. 14A-3-1. City abatement.

(a) If a declared nuisance is not completely abated by the owner or occupier of the premises within the time prescribed in an order to abate, the community development director or his or her agent is authorized and directed to cause the nuisance to be abated by a city personnel or private contract. In furtherance of this section, the community development director or his or her agent is expressly authorized to enter upon the premises for the purpose of abating the nuisance.
(b) Where required by state or federal law, a warrant shall be obtained prior to entry onto premises for the purpose of abating the nuisance, unless written consent to enter is received from the owner or occupant of the premises or warrantless entry is otherwise permissible under state or federal law. Where a warrant is required, notice shall be given to the owner or occupant of the issuance of the warrant twenty-four hours prior to the entry, unless the warrant provides otherwise. (Ord. No. 1495, § 3 (part).)
