Whenever, in the opinion of an officer of the village possessing police powers, the maintenance or continuation of a nuisance creates an imminent threat of serious injury to persons or serious damage to personal or real property, or if the nuisance can be abated summarily without or with only minor damage to the items or premises which are creating the nuisance, and the continuation of the nuisance poses a substantial threat of injury to persons or property or a substantial interference with the quiet enjoyment of life normally present in the community, such officer shall proceed to abate such nuisance; provided further, that whenever the owner, occupant, agent or person in possession, charge or control of the real or personal property which has become a nuisance is unknown or cannot readily be found, the village officer with police power may proceed to abate such nuisance without notice. Where the abatement of the nuisance requires continuing acts by the corporate authorities beyond the initial summary abatement and any other additional emergency abatement, it may seek abatement of such nuisance on a permanent basis through judicial process as soon as reasonably possible.
