After the date of this chapter, each person or persons owning any building in the City of DuBois shall number or cause to be numbered said building in accordance with the plans hereinafter mentioned and to be known as the "block system."

If any person shall refuse or neglect to place a number on his, her or their building or buildings as herein directed, after due notice, the Mayor shall cause either the Street Commissioner, the Chief of Police or a police officer of the City to place such number on the buildings of parties refusing to number buildings, and the cost thereof shall be collected by law with 20% added.
