The Building Official or an authorized representative shall notify the general contractor in writing regarding any complaint, and if the complaint is found to exist, shall request that efforts be undertaken by the general contractor to remedy the violation. If a subsequent complaint is received pertaining to the same job site, the Building Official or an authorized representative shall provide the general contractor with written notice that the general contractor has three working days in which to remedy the violation. If the general contractor fails to remedy the situation within the prescribed time, it shall be considered a violation of this code, and shall be punishable pursuant to § 10.99 of this code. In addition, the Building Official or an authorized representative shall cease all inspections until the job site is in compliance with this section.
