(B) No concrete, blacktop or other pavement shall be placed, poured or installed for a street, driveway, approach and/or sidewalk in the public right-of-way, nor shall any sewer-tap, pipe, catch basin, manhole or related appurtenances be covered up, backfilled or in any other way be rendered inaccessible until:
(1) The notice to the city pursuant to paragraph (A), above, has been made; and

(C) If a street, driveway, approach and/or sidewalk has been constructed or if any sewer-tap, pipe, catch basin, manhole or related appurtenances are covered up, backfilled or in any other way be rendered inaccessible without giving the notice pursuant to paragraph (A), above, or without obtaining the City Inspector’s approval pursuant to paragraph (B), above, the City’s Inspector may order removal of the street, driveway, approach or sidewalk, sewer-tap, pipe, catch basin, manhole or related appurtenances, and/or may order boring, engineering and/or testing to determine whether the improvement meets the minimum requirements of the city’s applicable regulations. All costs of boring, engineering, testing, removal and/or replacement cost shall be borne by the violator.

(d) Provides simple instructions on where the ticket is to be mailed with a check or money order in the amount of the stipulated civil fine; and
