A. Upon receiving an application for a permit to move a building, the building inspector shall make an examination of the building described in the application and shall examine the proposed location.
B. If it is found that no ordinance or law will be violated and that the public welfare, safety, or peace will not be endangered, he shall cause a notice to be posted on the front and rear of the lot or land to which it is proposed to move the building and shall cause a similar notice to be posted on the front of the building which is desired to be moved. Such notices shall bear a title in letters not less than three inches in height consisting of the words "Moving Notice." Said notices shall also state the location of the house by street and number, and the location of the lot or land to which it is proposed to move said building, together with the name of the applicant. Each of said notices shall be so placed that the bottom thereof shall be not less than four feet above the ground. All notices shall be placed not more than ten feet from the front and rear lines of the lot or land to which the building is to be moved. All signs shall face outward from the lot or property. Should the building which is proposed to be moved be located more than ten feet back from the property line, the notice shall be posted not more than ten feet back from the property line as well as upon the building proposed to be moved.
C. If upon the examination of the building, it is found by the building inspector to be constructed or in such condition to be dangerous; or is infested with pests or is unsanitary; or which is so dilapidated, defective, unsightly or in such condition of deterioration or disrepair that its location at the proposed site would cause appreciable harm to or be materially detrimental to the property and improvement in the neighborhood, the application for a moving permit shall be denied by the building inspector.
