(A) The Building Inspector shall inspect any building that is reported unsafe as defined in this subchapter, and if the building is found to be unsafe, a notice shall be given to the owner thereof stating the defects of the building. This notice may require the owner or person in charge of the building or premises, within five days, to commence either the required repairs or improvements or demolition and removal of the building or structure or portions thereof, and all the work shall be completed within 90 days from date of notice, unless otherwise stipulated by the Building Inspector. If necessary, the notice also shall require the building, structure, or portion thereof to be vacated forthwith and not reoccupied until the required repairs and improvements are completed, inspected, and approved by the Building Inspector.
(B) Proper service of the notice shall be by personal service upon the owner of record, if he or she shall be found within the village limits. If he or she is not found within the village limits, the service may be made upon the owner by registered mail or certified mail; provided, that if the service is by registered or certified mail, the designated period within which the owner or person in charge is required to comply with the order of the Building Inspector shall begin as of the date he or she receives the notice.
