3303.1 Construction documents. Construction documents and a schedule of demolition must be submitted when required by the Building Official. Where such information is required, no work shall be done until such construction documents or schedule, or both, are approved.

That all material, debris or parts of the wrecked structure be stored or removed in a manner so as not to create a fire or safety hazard;

That after any such building or structure has been demolished, razed, wrecked or removed, all ground openings, excavations or extrusions shall be filled or graded in compliance with relevant provisions of the current adopted building and property codes of the City of Frontenac in order to eliminate or reduce, to the fullest extent practicable, the hazards of falling or tripping;
4. 
That all accumulations of rubbish or debris or other unsafe or hazardous conditions, including broken glass, timber products and nails, shall be removed expeditiously; and
5. 
Compliance with the tree preservation regulations of the City of Frontenac, Chapter 425 of the Municipal Code of Frontenac, and the Stormwater Regulations, Chapter 506 of the Municipal Code of Frontenac; and

3303.6 Utility connections. Service utility connections shall be disconnected by the applicable utility and capped, if applicable, in accordance with approved rules and regulations of the authority having jurisdiction. Verification that utilities have been properly disconnected shall be in writing from the utility, and a copy of said documentation shall be submitted with the demolition permit application.
3303.8 St. Louis County Health Department Approval. Prior to issuance of a demolition permit the applicant shall submit a copy of the approval for demolition from the St. Louis County Health Department.
3303.9 Site restoration plan. A site restoration plan shall be submitted to the Building Official that must show in detail how the lot is to be restored, including removal of all debris, returning the site elevations to the original contour levels, sodding of bare dirt, stormwater and siltation controls, and the planting of trees and other landscape materials. Site restoration plans must include a completion date of no longer than thirty (30) days from issuance of a demolition permit. The Building Official may grant an extension of time, not to exceed thirty (30) days, based on inclement weather or some other undue hardship on the applicant, provided such hardship is not self-imposed.
3303.10 Bond or escrow. Prior to issuance of a demolition permit the applicant shall furnish the City with a fifteen-hundred-dollar cash escrow or bond suitable to the City guaranteeing that the demolition will be completed and the site will be properly restored in accordance with this code in the allowed time period.

3303.11 Emergency situations. If the building or structure is so damaged or deteriorated that there is imminent danger to public safety the demolition may proceed immediately without first obtaining a permit if all utilities have been disconnected and verified by the property owner. However, a permit must be obtained within three (3) days of said demolition. Emergency demolition does not relieve the property owner from adhering to the requirements of this Section.
3307 PROTECTION OF ADJOINING PROPERTIES.
3307.1 Protection required. Adjoining public and private property shall be protected from damage during construction, remodeling, and demolition work. Protection must be provided for footings, foundations, party walls, chimneys, skylights and roofs. Provisions shall be made to control water runoff and erosion during construction or demolition activities. The person making or causing an excavation to be made shall provide written notice to the owners of the adjoining buildings and properties advising them that the excavation is to be made and that the adjoining buildings should be protected. Said notice shall be delivered not less than ten (10) days prior to the scheduled starting date of the excavation. The notice shall include a request for a license or easement, if necessary, to enter any affected lot, building or structure prior to the commencement of work and at reasonable intervals during the work to inspect and preserve the lot, building or structure from damage. If the owner of said lot or property refuses to issue a license, then the applicant shall give notification in writing to the owner and the Building Official that the responsibility is that of the property owner.
3307.2 Street cleaning. Mud and debris on streets caused either directly or indirectly by construction or demolition shall be removed. This maintenance must be performed at all times during construction and demolition.
