Sec. 14C-1-3. Notice of intention to abate public nuisance and public hearing thereon.
(a) Whenever the fire chief or his or her authorized representative finds,
upon the recommendation of a duly authorized representative of the fire
department, that a nuisance as defined in this chapter exists on any lot or
premises, or upon any sidewalk, parking or street adjacent to such lot or
premises, he or she shall serve the property owner, agent of the owner, lessee
or occupant of the property on which the nuisance is located with a written
notice of intention to abate public nuisance. The notice of intention to abate
public nuisance shall demand that the property owner, agent of the owner,
lessee, or occupant remedy or abate such public nuisance within a reasonable
period of time which shall not be less than ten days. It shall also give notice
of the time, date and place that a public hearing will be held by the fire chief
or his or her authorized representative on the question of the determination of
the public nuisance and the abatement of the public nuisance. The public hearing
shall be set for a date after the time afforded for abatement expires.
Notification shall be given in accordance with Section
(b) Exception. If an irrevocable offer of dedication of real
property for road purposes exists on the property, then the city shall assume
the responsibility to abate the public nuisance if requested by the property
owner. The request shall be on a form provided by the city and shall include
agreement for right of entry. If the property owner will not authorize a right
of entry, then this exception shall not apply. (Ord. No. 1341,
