(A) If a public nuisance presents an imminent hazard to life or public safety, the town may do 1 or more of the following:
(1) Issue a notice to abate the nuisance, directing the person in control to immediately take such action as is appropriate to correct or abate the nuisance upon notice by the compliance agent to the person in control.
(2) Act to correct or abate the nuisance, whether or not the town is able to contact the person in control.
(B) The person in control may appeal an order to abate to the Town Council. Upon notice and request by the person in control, a hearing before the Town Council shall be scheduled as soon as practicable. Such appeal shall in no case stay the abatement or correction of a nuisance deemed to pose an imminent hazard.
(C) The town may recover its costs incurred in abating a nuisance that it deems to present an imminent hazard under this section in the same manner as provided for in this chapter to the extent practicable under the circumstance.
