(A)   Notice.
      (1)   Whenever the City Administrator or his or her designee determines that there are reasonable grounds to believe that there has been a violation of any provision of this section, the City Administrator shall give notice of the alleged violation to the person violating this section. The notice shall:
         (a)   Be in writing;
         (b)   Include a statement of the reasons for its issuance;
         (c)   Allow 30 days’ time for the performance of any act it requires. If work cannot be completed in the 30-day period, extensions may be granted in the case of demonstrated hardship; and
         (d)   Be served upon the violators or the owner or his or her agent as the case may require.
      (2)   Provided, that the notice or order shall be deemed to have been properly served upon the violator, owner or agent when a copy thereof has been sent by mail to his or her last known address, or when he or she has been served with the notice by any method authorized or required by the laws of this state.
   (B)   Emergency. Whenever the City Administrator finds that an emergency exists which requires immediate action to protect the public health, he or she may, without notice or hearing, issue an order reciting the existence of such an emergency and requiring that the action be taken as he or she may deem necessary to meet the emergency. Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, such an order shall be effective immediately. Any person to whom such an order is directed shall comply therewith immediately.
