§ 95.02  ABATEMENT.
   Any person who shall be guilty of causing, creating, suffering, or maintaining any of the things declared in § 95.01 to be nuisances shall be punished as provided in § 10.99, and, in addition thereto, it shall be the duty of the Chief of Police to keep a lookout for all offenses named in this chapter and to abate the same if the owner shall refuse to do so on notice from the Chief of Police. After notice to the owner to abate any nuisance and refusal on his part so to do, the Chief of Police shall abate the same at the expense of the city and the city shall then have the right to recover the costs of abatement from the person whose fault it was that the nuisance was permitted, created, or maintained.
