(A)   In accordance with G.S. § 160A-441, the town may require the repair, closing or demolition of any abandoned structure which the Council finds to be a health or safety hazard as a result of the attraction of insects or rodents, conditions creating a fire hazard, dangerous conditions constituting a threat to children or frequent use by vagrants as living quarters in the absence of sanitary facilities. The same provisions and procedures shall be used as are prescribed in this chapter for the repair, closing or demolition of dwellings found to be unfit for human habitation.
   (B)   Neither this chapter nor any of its provisions shall be construed to impair or limit in any way the power of the town to define and declare nuisances and to cause their abatement by summary action or otherwise and the enforcement of any remedy provided herein shall not prevent the enforcement of any other remedy or remedies provided herein or in other ordinances or laws.
