(A) Whenever an application is made for a building permit in the city, it shall be the duty of the Building Official to determine whether the improvement is to be erected on a lot or tract in a section served by public sidewalks or public curbs, and whether there is a probability that the public side-walks or public curbs and gutters may be damaged by moving supplies and materials to the proposed location. If, in the opinion of the Building Official, it appears probable that, in the course of construction, the public sidewalks or public curbs and gutters in front of or adjacent to or in the neighborhood of the proposed improvement may be damaged by moving supplies and materials to the proposed location, the Building Official shall require a cash bond of $250 to be posted with him by the applicant, to guarantee during the construction, before issuing the permit.
(B) The Building Official shall give a receipt for the sum of money on a form to be prepared by him. The receipt form shall contain a provision that any part or all of the sum shall be used by the city and its employees, if necessary, in the replacement of curbs, sidewalks, and gutters broken or damaged in construction.
(C) Before final approval of any building or structure constructed, whether there has been posted a cash bond or not, the Building Official shall require the necessary replacements or repairs to sidewalks, curbs, and gutters and shall refuse final approval of the construction unless replacements and repairs are made.
