(a) No person shall blast with dynamite, gun powder or any other explosive compound, within the limits of the Municipality, unless there shall first have been obtained a permit therefor from the Mayor. Such permit shall set forth the time at which and the circumstances under which such blasting may be done. Previous to each blasting a proper signal of warning shall be given which shall be approved by the Mayor, and the Mayor shall further impose such other protective measures as will insure safety to persons and property. No permit shall be issued unless such blasting can be done without injury to persons or damage to adjoining or other property. The Mayor is hereby authorized to require as a condition of such permit a bond in such amount and form, and with such sureties as he deems satisfactory, conditioned to pay all injuries and damages that may be caused to persons and/or property from such blasting operations. Such bond shall be furnished prior to the issuance of such permit. (Ord. 1967-30. Passed 6-14-67.)
