No building shall have the windows or doors blocked except to alleviate a dangerous condition which is of temporary nature. A detailed description of the planned work, including specifications of dangerous conditions; the name, address and phone number of the individual responsible for the property; and the period of time it will take to correct the condition, must be immediately submitted to the Administrative Officer for review and approval.

Only in extraordinary circumstances, and with the approval of the Borough Manager, will board-up be allowed on the outside of a building. The same painting requirements will remain in effect.
