The zoning administrator may be appointed by the mayor, with the advice and consent of the city council. In the absence of the zoning administrator position within the city, the mayor may assign such duties to other departments within the city, with the advice and consent of the city council. The zoning administrator is hereby authorized to enforce this title and all provisions hereof, and shall do so by any legal means available to him/her, including, but not limited to, the following:
A. Advise the building official, inspector and city engineer on the issuance of building permits, conditional use permits, zoning permits and development permits. When the zoning administrator gives written notification to the building official, inspector and/or city engineer that an intended use, building or structure would be in violation of this title, such written notification shall be presumption of nonconformance or illegality and a permit for such use, building or structure shall not be issued. (If the offices of building official and zoning administrator are held concurrently by one person, this person shall detail the violation in writing on the permit refusal notification.)
B. Inspect the uses of buildings, structures or land to determine compliance with this title. Such inspections shall be made at reasonable times.
C. Issue notices of violation wherever buildings or lands are being used contrary to the provisions of this title. (This shall be done by serving notice in writing on any person or group engaged in said use and posting such notice on the premises.)
D. Inform the city council of all title violations and recommend specific courses of action with regard to each violation.
E. Maintain a file of title violations and action taken by the city council on such violations. (Ord. 2008-002, 2008)
