(A) If at any time after the issuance of an excavation permit, the City Engineer or the Building Inspector shall find that the work for which the bond was given and posted does not pass a satisfactory test, or has not been timely or properly refilled, maintained, and restored to its original conditions, the City Engineer or Building Inspector shall notify the excavator in writing of the failure.
(B) If the deficiency does not constitute a hazard to vehicular traffic or pedestrian traffic, the excavator shall have a period of 20 days from the date of the written notification of the problem to correct or alleviate the problem. If the excavator does not correct or alleviate the problem within said 20-day time period, the city shall have the right to have to do the required repair and charge the excavator for the labor, material, and equipment time in making the repairs.
