§ 3115.06 Moving of Buildings
   (a)   Permits Required.
      (1)   No building shall be moved to any site within the City without a permit from the Commissioner. A permit to move any building shall not be issued until the Board of Building Standards and Building Appeals finds, after public hearing, that the building is structurally sound and that the condition of the building does not constitute a hazard to life or limb, that the building shall be made to comply with the requirements and limitations of the ordinances relating to zoning and the provisions contained in OBBC and this Building Code. Plans shall be submitted which disclose such alterations, modifications or repairs as are necessary to secure compliance with the ordinances relating to zoning and the provisions comprising this OBBC and Building Code. Variations and exceptions to the ordinances relating to zoning and the provisions comprising OBBC and this Building Code shall not be granted if the buildings and land uses within one hundred fifty (150) feet of the new site conform to the requirements or limitations from which a variation is sought. Notice of the public hearing shall be mailed to the owner of the building, to the owner of the site to which the building is to be moved, and to the owners of property within one hundred fifty (150) feet of the new site who are directly affected by the movement of the building, not less than five (5) days prior to the date of the hearing.
      (2)   No building or other similar large structure shall be moved through the streets of the City or over public property, unless the application for a permit made to the Commissioner has been approved and countersigned by the Director of Public Service, Director of Public Safety, Commissioner of Water, and the Commissioner of Shade Trees.
      (3)   The officials issuing or countersigning such permits may prescribe conditions, requirements, routes and precautions, and the day, days, and hour of the day during which such moving operations shall be conducted, as deemed necessary in the public interest; and all moving shall be performed in conformity therewith.
   (b)   Registration.
      (1)   No person, firm, or corporation shall engage in the business of house moving unless such person, firm or corporation holds a valid certificate of registration issued by the Commissioner in conformity with the applicable provisions of Chapter 3107.
      (2)   No permit for moving any building or other similar large structure through any street or over any other public property shall be given any person not holding a valid certificate of registration.
   (c)   Inspector of House Moving. Whenever deemed necessary in the public interest, the Director of Public Service may require that such moving operations be conducted in the presence of and under the supervision of an inspector of house moving designated by him or her, who shall perform such required service at the cost of the person doing such moving or the owner of the property being moved.
   (d)   Time Limit. No person shall permit any building or other structure, or part thereof, to stand on any street or other public property for a period longer than that specified in the permit therefor.
   (e)   Exception. The provisions of subsections (a)(2), (a)(3), (b) and (c) hereof shall not apply to the vehicular transportation of material, buildings, or other structures contained within a legally operated vehicle which does not exceed the maximum width, length and height specified in Section 439.07 of the Codified Ordinances.
