City drainage ditches and adjoining property shall be protected from mud, silt and erosion by installing and maintaining proper silt fence while doing excavation work. Silt fences shall be checked and maintained by the property owner(s), their agent, or contractor. If a fence fails and
city workers are called out to clean up washed silt and debris, the city shall send an invoice to cover the cost of such cleanup work. A lien may be placed against the real estate for the amount if not paid by the property owner. (Ord. 2-27-17.)
