1311.20  OCCUPANCY GUARANTEE REQUIRED FOR MOVED BUILDINGS.
   (a)       Before any residential dwelling or building, for which an application for a moving permit has been made to move such residential dwelling or building from one parcel of land to another parcel of land, whether such moving occurs entirely within the City, from without the City into the City, or from within the City to without the City, the person, firm or corporation who is the owner thereof shall be required to post with the City a combination cash-surety performance bond. In the case of a residential dwelling, such bond shall be in the amount of four thousand dollars ($4,000) cash and six thousand dollars ($6,000) surety performance bond. In the case of any building other than a residential dwelling, such bond shall be in the amount of eight thousand dollars ($8,000) cash and twelve thousand dollars ($12,000) surety performance bond. Such bonds shall guarantee that such residential dwelling or building, as moved into or within the City, shall be suitable and ready for occupancy within six months from the date of such moving permit, and that the lot within the City from which such moving occurs shall be fully restored to grade level. The Building Commissioner shall determine such suitability and readiness for occupancy in accordance with the ordinances of the City.
 
   (b)       In the event any residential dwelling or building for which a moving permit has been granted is not suitable and ready for occupancy or the lot is not fully restored to grade level within the time prescribed in subsection (a) hereof, the City shall complete whatever work is necessary, and, in the case of the surety bond, the City shall notify such surety and principal to complete the work necessary within thirty days. Upon failure of the surety and/or principal to complete the work within the time period specified, the Director of Law shall commence forfeiture proceedings against such surety and/or principal.
