§ 157.14 VIOLATIONS.
   (A)   Service of notice; initial violation. Whenever the Building Commissioner determines that there has been or is a gross violation, or that there are reasonable grounds to believe that there has been a gross violation of any provision of this chapter, the Commissioner shall give notice of such gross violation or alleged gross violation. Notice of gross violation shall be served upon the owner of record by certified mail, return receipt requested, or personal service upon the landowner and/or tenant if a resident of the city, or by posting a copy thereof in a conspicuous place in or about the structure affected by the notice. Such notice shall:
      (1)   Be in writing;
      (2)   Include a description of the real estate sufficient for identification;
      (3)   Specify the gross violation which exists and the remedial action request;
      (4)   Allow a reasonable time for the performance of any act it requires.
   (B)   Service of notice; continuing violation. If an initial notice of gross violation was provided by certified mail or first class mail, a notice of continuing violation may be posted at the premises or structure. A notice of continuing violation serves as notice that each subsequent gross violation during the same year for which an initial notice of the gross violation was issued subjects a person to prosecution of the gross violation as set forth in § 157.16.
