(b) In cases of development of property, any mud, paper, ashes, dirt, trash or similarly objectionable matter deposited or placed on a public way, street or alley area by any person or group of persons employed by the property owner or by his or her subcontractors, suppliers, etc., in connection with the development of the property, shall be attributable to the owner and general contractor as well as the person depositing such matter, and it shall be their joint and several responsibility to remove or cause the same to be removed on the same day that it is deposited or placed on the street.

Any material located on a street observably tracked from a construction site shall constitute prima facie evidence of a violation of this section.
(c) If any property owner violates the provisions of this section, all building, electrical and plumbing permits relating to the property may be revoked until the objectionable matter is removed.
(d) Whoever violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor of the fourth degree.
