      4.   The mayor and city council shall consider said application at their next regular meeting and after investigating the properties and location in person, and if, in their opinion, the proposed building structure will not create a fire hazard within the proposed building district because of being of inflammable material, or will not endanger the health of tenants who might occupy said building because of the same not being sufficiently weatherproof or built of materials of sufficient quality to meet the demands of the climate in this area, and if said building will not endanger the health of other residents within the city because of its lack of proper modern sanitary facilities, and if the building shall not be so emplaced so that it will be unsightly when compared with its immediate surroundings, then and in that event a special building permit shall be issued, permitting said building to be so emplaced in keeping with the plans and specifications of the applicant.
