(A) The Common Council finds that excessive calls for service to problem areas, trouble spots or high-activity areas place an undue burden on public safety resources, which may result in decreased public safety services being provided to other geographic areas of the city.
(B) The regulations set forth in this chapter are designed to protect the overall public health, safety and welfare of the city. They are further designed to help prevent and assist in abating repeat calls for service to the same property or location, which may result in diminished public safety services being provided to other residents and areas of the city. Repeat nuisance service call fees are authorized to be imposed and collected from the owner, commercial tenant, occupant and/or operator of the property designated as a commercial chronic problem property. Such fees are intended to help cover costs incurred by the city which are over and above the cost of providing services to properties not designated as a commercial chronic problem property.
