The requirement to abate a nuisance is not a penalty for violating this code but is an additional remedy. Abatement proceedings and prosecution of a nuisance may occur simultaneously. The imposition of a penalty does not relieve a person responsible of the duty to abate the nuisance – however, abatement by a person responsible of a nuisance within 10 days of the date of notice to abate, or if a written protest has been filed, then abatement within 10 days of the hearings official’s determination that a nuisance exists, may be considered by the court in sentencing violators.

(Section 6.105 amended by Ordinance No. 19393, enacted July 28, 1986, effective January 28, 1987.)
