(a) Any person who obtains a building permit in the City for new construction for a dwelling and/or a commercial or industrial structure, shall post with the Director of Finance a security cash bond in the sum of one hundred dollars ($100.00) to assure no littering of streets, roads or public ways with mud and/or other building materials. A security deposit shall be posted for each building permit.
Any person who obtains a building permit and contemplates more than one building permit in any subdivision or subdivisions that are adjacent, contiguous and adjoining each other in one development, is hereby granted the alternative of posting with the Director of Finance a cash bond in the amount of five hundred dollars ($500.00) in lieu of the cash bond in the amount of one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each building permit. However, in the event it is necessary for the City to use such security deposit as set forth in subsection (b) hereof, the Director shall notify the person who posted such bond in the amount of five hundred dollars ($500.00) as to the amount of money used by the City, and, within five days, such person shall reimburse the City the sum of money used in order to maintain the cash bond in the total sum of five hundred dollars ($500.00). If such charges are not paid within the allotted time, the Division of Building and Zoning Inspection is hereby ordered not to issue any additional permits for the development covered by the reduced bond until such time as payment is made.

(b) Any person who causes or permits the littering of streets, roads or other public ways with debris or excavating materials by reason of the removal or conveyance of such materials on the streets, roads or other public ways, shall clean and/or remove such debris within twenty-four hours after being notified by the Director of Public Service or his or her authorized agent. If the person fails to remove or is unable to remove such materials, then such cleaning service shall be rendered by the Department of Public Service at the current hourly rates of its equipment and personnel.
The Department of Public Service shall render the bill for such services to the person and shall also send a duplicate bill to the Director of Finance. In the event the person does not pay such bill within five days from the date of such bill, then the Director is authorized to use the security deposit for the payment of such bill.
(c) The Director of Finance is hereby authorized to return the security deposit or any unused portion thereof when the Superintendent of Building and Zoning Inspection issues a certificate of occupancy.
