§ 93.03  ABATEMENT OF PUBLIC NUISANCES.
   (A)   (1)   Whenever complaint is made to the Village President that a public nuisance exists or has existed within the village, he or she shall promptly notify the Chief of Police or some other village official whom the President shall designate, who shall forthwith inspect or cause to be inspected the premises and shall make a written report of his or her findings to the President.
      (2)   Whenever practicable, the inspecting officer shall cause photographs to be made of the premises and shall file the same in the office of the Village Clerk.
   (B)   (1)   Notice to owner.  If the inspecting officer shall determine that a public nuisance exists on private property and that there is a great and immediate danger to the public health, safety, peace, morals or decency, the Village President may direct the Chief of Police or a Deputy Sheriff to serve a notice on the owner, or, if the owner cannot be found, on the occupant or person causing, permitting or maintaining the nuisance and to post a copy of the notice on the premises.  The notice shall direct the owner, occupant or person causing, permitting or maintaining such nuisance to abate or remove the nuisance within 24 hours, but not longer than ten days, depending upon the extremity of the danger or nuisance, and shall state that unless the nuisance is so abated, the village will cause same to be abated and will charge the cost thereof to the owner, occupant or person causing, permitting or maintaining the same, as the case may be.
      (2)   Abatement by village.  If the nuisance is not abated within the time provided, or if the owner, occupant or person causing the nuisance cannot be found, the Director of Public Works or some other village official whom the President shall designate shall cause the abatement or removal of the public nuisance.
   (C)   If the inspecting officer shall determine that a public nuisance exists on private premises, but that the nature of the nuisance is not such as to threaten great and immediate danger to the public health, safety, peace, morals or decency, he or she shall file a written report of his or her findings with the President, who shall cause an action to abate the nuisance to be commenced in the name of the village.
