[R.O. 2008 §6-106; Ord. No. 335 §1, 8-27-1962; Ord. No. 973 §12, 11-1-1980; Ord. No. 1941 §1, 6-8-1998]
Any person, firm, company or corporation desiring to demolish, wreck, raze, dismantle or otherwise destroy any structure or building within the City shall obtain a permit from the Department of Community Development authorizing the work to be performed, which permit shall be valid for a period of sixty (60) days and no demolition, wrecking, razing or dismantling shall take place unless such permit be valid. A fee as specified in Appendix B to Title IV shall be paid to the City for each such permit and each separate structure or building shall require a permit. Such person, firm, company or corporation shall be further required to post, for each such permit, a cash bond or a bond, with sureties approved by the City Attorney, in an amount not less than one thousand five hundred dollars ($1,500.00) or a greater amount, as determined by the Director of Community Development, with such amount sufficient to insure that all clearing, filling, backfilling and removal of debris, returning the site elevations to the original contour levels, seeding and/or sodding of bare dirt, stormwater and siltation controls can be properly completed or installed. Complete restoration of the site including the planting of grass seed or sodding shall occur within ninety (90) days of the completion of the demolition of the structure or building unless within such ninety (90) days a building permit for the construction of a new structure or building on the same site has been obtained from the Department of Community Development and construction commenced. The Director of community development may grant extensions to this time, not to exceed an additional sixty (60) days, based on inclement weather or some other undue hardship on the applicant, provided such hardship is not self-imposed. The above required bond shall be held, without interest, and shall not be released by the City until such restoration is complete or construction of a replacement structure or building has commenced.

No person shall move any structure or building from its present location to any other location within the City unless a permit therefor is first obtained from the City. The fee for such permit shall be in an amount as specified in Appendix B to Title IV for each building or structure to be moved. Such person, firm, company or corporation shall further be required to post a bond in an amount as specified in Appendix B to Title IV, in cash or with sureties approved by the City Council, assuring the City that all rules, regulations and ordinances shall be observed and all damage or injury to streets and property as a result of such move shall be properly replaced and repaired. No such removal of any structure or building shall be permitted unless the City is notified at least seven (7) days in advance of the day and time of such proposed move, so that all utilities that may be affected may make proper arrangements.
