(a)   Any permit issued by the City Building Official under provisions of this Code shall expire by limitation when no building construction is started within six months from the date of issuance.
   (b)   Permits shall be subject to revocation when construction is discontinued for a period of one year, or when in the opinion of the Chief Building Official the completion of the construction has been unduly delayed. Such revocation shall not be rescinded until the plans and uncompleted construction are made to comply with all the requirements of law at the time of rescinding such revocation.
   (c)   Before commencing the construction, enlargement, alteration, repair or removal of any building or other structure, or the excavation therefore, in which it is desired or may be necessary to drive across the curb, tree lawn or sidewalk, the person obtaining the permit shall cut the curb for a sufficient width at the location of the contemplated permanent driveway so as to prevent damage to the remainder of the curb, and if there is no curbing, he shall install in the ditch paralleling the street, tile of sufficient size to prevent the backing up of water in such ditch and shall cover the tile with crushed stone or gravel to the level of the existing road for a width sufficient to allow trucks carrying building supplies to pass over. Thereafter, no vehicle shall be driven across the curb, tree lawn, sidewalk or ditch except by way of such curb cut and proposed driveway. Such person shall take such further action as may be necessary to prevent the formation of ruts, depressions or other obstacles or hazards to pedestrian travel along the tree lawn or sidewalk. All of such work shall be done under the supervision and to the satisfaction of the Building Official, who shall have the authority to determine the width, depth and manner of cutting the curb or laying tile and the type of protection of the sidewalk and tree lawn. The fee for such permit shall be one hundred dollars ($100.00) for residential and one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00) for Commercial work.
   Before commencing the construction, alteration or repair of any such building or other structure or the excavation therefor, the owner shall construct a driveway of gravel or crushed stone from the curb extending to the farthest point where building materials will be unloaded. When such structure is completed, such driveway shall be completed in compliance with the requirements then in force as to the construction of driveways.
