[Adopted as Ch. 7, Art. III, of the 1973 Code]
No person shall move or cause to be moved any building into, along or across any street, avenue, alley or public ground in the City without first obtaining a written permit so to do from the Mayor and City Clerk.
Permission granted under the provisions of this article shall particularly set forth the route to be taken in moving such building, and the route shall be determined so as to cause the least interference with public use of the streets and the least danger of injury to public or private property. No variation from the route so fixed shall be made without further written permission from the Mayor.
The permission of the Mayor for moving a building within this City shall not be given unless the party applying therefor shall first execute and file with the City Clerk a good and sufficient bond in an amount set by the City Council, with one or more sureties, approved by the Mayor, conditioned for the full compliance by the person to whom such permission is given with all the provisions of this article and for the payment by him of all penalties incurred by him and all damage to public and private property or interests for which he may be found liable.
[Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. I)]
Any person, manager or owner of any electric line, telephone, telegraph or owner of other private property of any kind whatsoever may sue for damages on the bond required by the provisions of this article.
The work for which a permit is issued under the provisions of this article shall be diligently prosecuted continuously in the daytime until completion; and for the protection of the public, warning shall be given by the display of red lights at night, such lights to be furnished and displayed by the person moving or causing to be moved any such building.
The building shall at no time be left standing where it may cause any obstruction to streets at intersections, to railroad tracks, or to any electric or other wires lawfully occupying the street. Due care shall be taken to avoid injury to streets, sidewalks, shade trees, railroad tracks, poles, electric and other wires and all public and private property.
The person in charge of moving a building within this City shall give proper notice to the managers of all railroad lines, and utilities having electric or other wires, of the route assigned to him and the time when the building moved by him will approach such lines and arrange the passage of such building so as to secure the least interference possible with the operation of such lines.
