(A) The Village Maintenance Supervisor or other duly authorized representative of the Board of Trustees may serve a notice of violation and order upon any person responsible, in whole or in part, for the construction, alteration, repair, maintenance, or removal of public improvements in violation of engineering drawings and specifications approved pursuant to this chapter, or in violation of any permit issued under the provision of this chapter, or otherwise in violation of this chapter. Such order may direct the discontinuance of the illegal action or condition and the abatement of the violation. Refer to the notice of violation form in Appendix A.
(B) Upon notice from the Village Maintenance Supervisor or other duly authorized representative of the Board of Trustees that work on any public improvement is being prosecuted contrary to the provisions of this chapter or is being prosecuted in an unsafe or dangerous manner, such work shall be immediately stopped. Such a notice stopping work, a stop-work order, shall be in writing and shall be served upon or otherwise given to the subdivider, or the subdivider’s engineer, or to any person in charge of or performing work on public improvements in the subdivisions, or to an agent of any of the foregoing. Such an order shall state the conditions under which work may be resumed. No person shall continue any work after having been served with a stop-work order, except such work as is required to be performed to remove a violation or dangerous or unsafe condition.
(C) The subdivider, subdivider’s engineer, any person in charge of or performing work on public improvements in the subdivision or any other interested person may appeal to the Board of Trustees from a decision of the Village Maintenance Supervisor or other duly authorized representative of the Board of Trustees issuing a notice of violation or stop-work order pursuant to this section. The appeal shall be in writing setting forth the reasons for the appeal and shall be filed with the Village Clerk within ten days after receipt of the notice or stop-work order. The appeal shall be heard at the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Board of Trustees, but not more than 30 days following the receipt of the appeal by the Village Clerk. The filing of an appeal shall not operate as a stay of a notice of violation or stop-work order.
