In the event that consent to enter the premises is withheld, the Code Inspector may make application to the proper court for an order requiring access to the premises.
(B) Inspections of all buildings or structures shall be made during reasonable hours. If the Director has probable cause to believe an immediate threat exists to the health, welfare or safety of persons in or about any building or structure, he/she may direct that an inspection be made at anytime.
