Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 1323.03, for owners who maintain on file with the City's Department of Community Development in a form approved by the Community Development Director a current, up-to-date list comprised of all the names of their tenants of single-family dwelling units, the address of each tenant's dwelling unit, and such tenant's mailing address; when, upon inspection, it is determined that a public nuisance exists in the form of litter, rubbish, or refuse [as defined in Section 1323.01(c) and (g)] at a single-family dwelling unit, then the Community Development Director or Chief of Police shall send or deliver a written notice to abate such public nuisance to each owner and to the tenant who caused or permitted the public nuisance to exist. Such notice served on the tenant shall identify the public nuisance and require the tenant to abate the public nuisance within seven (7) days of such notice and such notice served on the owner shall identify the public nuisance and require the owner to abate the public nuisance within fourteen (14) days of such notice either by the removal of the public nuisance or the repair of the public nuisance in accordance with Section 1323.06. Failure to abate the public nuisance within fourteen (14) days of such notice being served on both the owner and tenant, as provided herein, may cause the City to abate the public nuisance at the expense of the owner or tenant, or both, who caused or permitted such public nuisance to exist.
