Sec. 8-4.14. Noticed Code Violations.
   Where noticed code violations exist, the building official shall issue a notice of denial of permit to the permit applicant or to the current owner (if not the applicant). The notice of denial of permit shall include a description of the noticed code violations. Failure of any person to receive a properly addressed notice of denial of permit pursuant to this section shall not invalidate the denial of a permit.
   The building official may issue a permit or a permit with conditions to an owner, despite the existence of one or more noticed code violations, if it is determined that one of the following circumstances exists:
   (a)   The noticed code violations require the permit being applied for in order to abate the violations.
   (b)   Denial of a permit would result in an immediate threat to:
      (i)   The health or safety of occupants of the real property on which noticed code violations exist; or
      (ii)   The occupants of adjoining private property; or
      (iii)   Persons on public property.
