Section: 120 - Emergency abatement

A.  Notwithstanding the provisions of Sections 14.05.070 and 14.05.080, the enforcing officer may order and cause the immediate abatement of any condition without notice if he finds that the public health, safety or welfare are immediately threatened or endangered by the condition and the circumstances require abatement before the owner can be notified of the condition or, if so notified, before abatement can be accomplished by the owner.

B.   A complete report shall be rendered by the enforcing officer to the board of supervisors at its next regular meeting. The board may hold a hearing under the provisions of Section 14.05.080 to determine whether the cost of the emergency abatement should be specially assessed against the parcel where the work occurred which caused the condition.
