(a)   It shall be unlawful for any owner, occupant, lessee, or other person in interest of such dwelling, building or structure as determined by the Agency to be dangerous, unhealthy, or unfit for human habitation to fail to comply with any order to repair, vacate, or demolish and remove the same, or any other order of the Agency from which no appeal or remedy has been invoked.  The imposition of one penalty for any violation shall not excuse imprisonment or fine or both for continuing violation; and all such persons shall be required to correct or remedy such violations or defects within a reasonable time, and when not otherwise specified, each ten days of prohibited conditions shall constitute a separate offense.
   (b)   It shall be unlawful for any person to remove any notice or order of the Agency posted as required under any of the provisions of this article.
   (c)   It shall be unlawful for any person to willfully obstruct, impede, or interfere with the Agency, or any representative or officer of the Agency or with any person who owns, or holds any estate or interest in any dwelling which has been ordered by the Agency to be vacated, demolished or removed, or with any person to whom such dwelling has been lawfully sold, pursuant to the provisions of this article, whenever any such representative or officer of the Agency, purchaser, or person having an interest or estate in such dwelling, structure or building is engaged in repairing, vacating, closing, or demolishing any such dwelling, or in performing any necessary act preliminary or incidental to such work.
