(A) Notwithstanding any other provision in this chapter, when the Codes Enforcement Officer finds a building or structure is unmistakably dangerous and imminently endangers human life or property, the Codes Enforcement Officer may immediately declare the building or structure a nuisance and summarily order the building demolished.
(B) If summary abatement occurs, the owner shall be afforded a post-abatement hearing before the City Council at the earliest opportunity, to determine whether abatement was proper. The Codes Enforcement Officer shall notify the owner and any other person holding a legal interest in the property of the time and place of the post-abatement hearing. A copy of this notice shall be posted on the property. Not less than ten days prior to the hearing, notice of the hearing shall be published in a newspaper of general circulation in the city or by posting notices in three public places in the city.
(C) After hearing on summary abatement, the City Council shall, by resolution, determine whether abatement was proper or not, and, if proper, assess the costs of abatement as provided by § 151.11.
