(a) Prior to the issuance of any building, razing, excavation or zoning permit for property located in an R-1A, R-1 or R-2 Residence District, as defined in the Zoning Code, the applicant therefor shall deposit the sum of one hundred dollars ($100.00) in cash with the Treasurer for each such permit. Prior to the issuance of any building, razing, excavation or zoning permit for any other property in the Municipality, the applicant therefor shall deposit the sum of three hundred dollars ($300.00) in cash with the Treasurer for each such permit. Such deposits shall be for the purpose of paying any costs incurred by the Municipality in removing from streets, alleys or other public ways refuse or debris, including, without limitation, mud, sand, gravel, rock, paint, oil, building materials, boxes and containers resulting from work at the site for which the building, razing, excavation or zoning permit is issued. Whenever the balance of any such deposit becomes less than ten dollars ($10.00), additional cash equal to the original sum shall be deposited with the Treasurer. Failure to do so shall be cause for revocation of the building, razing, excavation or zoning permit.
(b) In the event a street, alley or public way contains refuse or debris from a construction, razing or excavation site, the Superintendent of Building Inspection, or his authorized agent, shall notify the holder of the building, razing, excavation or zoning permit issued for such site of such condition and request the immediate removal of such refuse and debris. If such refuse and debris are not removed within twelve hours of such notification, the Municipality shall remove such refuse and debris and the cost of such removal shall be deducted from the cash sum deposited with the Treasurer for that purpose.
