A. In all cases where the Code Enforcement Officer has determined to proceed with issuance of a Notice of Violation and Order to Correct or Civil Infraction, then ten (10) days after issuance of such Notice or Civil Infraction, the city shall have the ability, in addition to any other remedy provided in this chapter and not as an alternative means of abatement to the exclusion of others, to abate the nuisance identified by the Code Enforcement Officer in the Notice of Violation and Order to Correct or Civil Infraction as provided herein.
B. A violation of this chapter may be subject to abatement by the following means:
1. Summarily, by a restraining order or injunction issued by a court of competent jurisdiction; or
2. Following issuance of a Notice of Violation and Order to Correct or Civil Infraction, and following the expiration of the time to correct the condition or cease the activity constituting a nuisance as identified in the Notice and Order or ten (10) days after the issuance of a Civil Infraction, a written notice of the Code Enforcement Officer sent by return receipt mail to the owner, as such appears on the rolls of the county assessor, which notice shall state that the City Council will consider for adoption, after not less than ten (10) days from the date of that notice, a resolution which shall describe the property involved by street address or parcel number and the condition in violation of this chapter and require the owner to make the removal or destruction of such condition. Such notice shall state the owner may appear before the City Council at the time it considers such resolution and that will be the owner’s only opportunity to protest the proposed action of the City Council to abate the nuisance as provided in this section. Such notice shall further provide that should the City Council adopt such resolution it may direct therein that the destruction or removal of the condition in violation of this chapter is to be accomplished by city forces or contractors and that all costs, direct and indirect, of such work shall be charged to the owner. If such removal or destruction is not made by the owner after the notice is given, the City Council may by resolution passed not less than ten (10) days from the date of the notice, cause the city to make the removal or destruction thereof as provided herein and provide that the cost thereof shall become a charge against the owner of the property. This debt shall be collectible in the same manner as other debts owing to the city.
