Sec. 14C-1-7. Decision of the fire chief or his authorized representative.

Following the public hearing, the fire chief or his or her authorized representative shall consider all evidence and determine whether or not the property, or any part of the property, constitutes a public nuisance as alleged. If the fire chief or his or her authorized representative finds that a public nuisance
does exist and that there is sufficient cause to abate the nuisance, the fire chief or his or her authorized representative shall make a written order setting forth those findings and ordering the owner, agent of the owner, lessee, occupant or other person having charge or control of the property to abate the nuisance in the manner and by the means specifically set forth in the fire chief’s or his or her authorized representative’s order. The order shall state that if the nuisance is not abated, it will be abated by the city. The order shall state that the cost of abatement will be assessed upon the property from which the nuisance is removed and will constitute a lien upon the property until paid. The order shall set forth the time within which the work shall be commenced and completed. (Ord. No. 1341, (part).)
