(a)    The provisions of this code shall be the primary source of laws to establish and enforce the minimum structural and maintenance standards for commercial, business and any other non-residential structures within the Village and all other provisions of the Village Codified Ordinances relating to the repair and maintenance of such structures shall be supplemental to the provisions of this chapter.
   (b)    Each of the sections or subsections of this code and the several parts and provisions thereof are declared to be independent of the others and if any such section, subsection, part or provision is found to be unconstitutional, void, or ineffective for any reason, such finding shall not affect, nor render invalid any other section, subsection, part or provision thereof.
   (c)    This chapter shall be enforced using good judgment and with consideration of the circumstances which may exist at the time. The Council and Village Administrator shall discuss and determine the priority for addressing structures which do not meet provisions of this property maintenance code. The emphasis on enforcement shall be to address first those properties with substantial structural defects or conditions which pose a serious risk to the health and safety of owners, employees and customers of such properties. Thereafter, the Village Administrator will survey properties located in the Village by geographic location and compile a list of those properties to be addressed under this property maintenance code.
