676.07  ABATEMENT OF BLIGHT AND NUISANCES.
   Where no other procedure is made specifically applicable by other provisions of the City Code, any structure, condition or activity prohibited by this chapter may be abated by the City Manager, or his or her designee, in accordance with the following procedure.  The City Manager, or his or her designee, shall investigate the existence of the alleged condition of blight or nuisance to determine whether or not the blight or nuisance exists and to further determine the person who has created or is committing or maintaining such condition of blight or nuisance.  The City Manager, or his or her designee, shall then give written notice to the person responsible for the creation, commission or maintenance of such blight or nuisance, specifying the nature of the blight or nuisance, the corrective action to be taken to abate the blight or nuisance, and the time limit for abatement of such condition of blight or nuisance, which shall be a reasonable period of time but not to exceed 30 days from the date of the notice. Such notice shall be delivered either to the party responsible by first class United States mail or delivered directly to the person responsible.  The City Manager, or his or her designee, may grant an extension of time of not more than 30 days if so necessary.  If the condition of blight or nuisance is not abated within the period of time provided given to the person responsible for the creation, commission or maintenance of the problem, the City Manager, or his or her designee, shall make arrangements to have the blight or nuisance abated.
