(a)   No property owner, tenant or person having control of property within the City shall create or allow dangerous conditions to exist on his or her premises. "Dangerous conditions," as used in this subsection, means any open, unguarded or unprotected excavation or building which, when abandoned or left open or otherwise unprotected, will likely prove dangerous to life or limb, or an abandoned, open, uncovered or otherwise unprotected well, cesspool, cistern or catch basin.
(Ord. 639. Passed 3-6-61.)
   (b)   No person shall abandon or knowingly permit to remain on private property, any excavation, well, cesspool or structure which is in the process of construction, reconstruction, repair or alteration unless the same is adequately protected by suitable barricades and guarded by warning devices or lights at night so that the condition will not reasonably prove dangerous to life or limb.
   (c)   No person shall destroy, remove, damage or extinguish any barricade or warning light that is placed for the protection of the public so as to prevent injury to life or limb.
   (d)   Any owner or agent in control of a premises upon which a basement, cellar, well or cistern has been abandoned due to demolition, failure to build or any other reason shall cause the same to be filled to the ground surface with rock, gravel, earth or other suitable material.
   (e)   Whoever violates any of the provisions of this section is guilty of a minor misdemeanor. A separate offense shall be deemed committed each day during or on which a violation occurs or continues. The penalty shall be as provided in Section 698.02.
