All sidewalks shall be placed in accordance with specifications and rules which the Director of Public Works is hereby authorized to prepare in conformity herewith and as required for public convenience and safety, such specifications and rules to apply to the quality and proportions of the required materials, the method of construction, and the type of finish. The finished surface of the sidewalk shall rise 1/5 inch per foot from curb grade to the property line unless a deviation therefrom is approved by order of this special permit.
The Director of Public Works is hereby authorized to order the owner of the fronting property to remove the brick, quarry-tile, or exposed concrete aggregate sidewalk surfaces and to construct a concrete sidewalk in accordance with the provisions of Section 703 hereof, when in the judgment of said Director public interest and convenience require such removal and reconstruction.
The order shall specify the time within which the work is to be completed, and also the time within which the owner must declare, in writing to the Director, his intention to do the work.
