A.   Any police officer, fire inspector, or any officer designated by the city to inspect a premises may, upon affidavit, apply to a court of competent jurisdiction for a search warrant setting forth factually the actual conditions and circumstances that provide a reasonable basis for believing that a nuisance or violation of any ordinance of the city or any statute of the state may exist, including, but not limited to, one or more of the following:
      1.   That the premises or records require inspection according to the cycle established by the inspecting officer or the city council for periodic or systematic inspection of records, buildings or premises of the type involved;
      2.   That observation of external conditions of the premises and its public areas has resulted in the belief that violations of any ordinance of the city or state statute exist;
      3.   That an unlicensed or inoperable motor vehicle is present upon private property in violation of city ordinance;
   B.   If the court of competent jurisdiction is satisfied as to the matters set forth in the affidavit, the court shall authorize the issuance of a search warrant permitting access to and inspection of that part of the premises on which the nuisance or violation may exist, the towing of a specific vehicle, or such other actions as the court deems appropriate.
