Whenever a continuing violation of this chapter will materially impair the code enforcement officer’s ability to secure compliance with this chapter, or when the continuing violation threatens the health or safety of the public, the code enforcement officer may issue a stop work order specifying the violation and prohibiting any work or other activity at the site. Any violation of a stop work order is hereby declared to be a nuisance and the code enforcement officer is authorized to enjoin or abate such nuisance by any legal or equitable means as may be available. The costs, specifically including reasonable attorney and expert witness fees, for the injunction or abatement shall be recovered by the city from the owner, tenant, occupant, manager, agent, or other responsible person in the manner provided by law. (Ord. 529 § 1, 2018)
