Chapter 14C WEED ABATEMENT.
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
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).)
