(A) In cases where delay in abatement caused by the notice and procedure requirements set forth in § 91.21 of this chapter will permit a continuing nuisance to unreasonably endanger public health, safety or welfare, the City Administrator may order summary enforcement and abate the nuisance. To proceed with summary enforcement, the officer charged with enforcement shall determine that a public nuisance exists or is being maintained on premises in the city and that delay in abatement of the nuisance will unreasonably endanger public health, safety or welfare. The enforcement officer shall notify in writing the occupant or owner of the premises of the nature of the nuisance and of the city’s intention to seek summary enforcement and the time and place of a meeting with the City Administrator to consider the question of summary enforcement. The City Administrator shall determine whether or not the condition identified in the notice to the owner or occupant is a nuisance, whether public health, safety or welfare will be unreasonably endangered by delay in abatement required to complete the procedure set forth in § 91.21 of this chapter and may order that the nuisance be immediately terminated or abated. If the nuisance is not immediately terminated or abated, the City Administrator may order summary enforcement and abate the nuisance.
(B) The Council hereby finds that the removal of snow and ice from public sidewalks, grass and noxious weed mowing and destruction will unreasonably endanger the public health, safety and welfare and that summary enforcement shall be ordered by the officer charged with enforcement after notice and the time to comply have been given as provided for in this subchapter.
