[HISTORY: Adopted by the Borough Council of the Borough of Collingdale 7-6-1999 by Ord. No. 625 (Ch. 4, Part 1, of the 1987 Code of Ordinances). Amendments noted where applicable.]
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.
If boarding is approved, all board-up must be installed inside the building, with all surfaces that face outside to be painted white. 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.
Any person, firm or corporation who shall violate any provision of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof, be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $300 and/or to imprisonment for a term not to exceed 90 days. Every day that a violation of this chapter continues shall constitute a separate offense.
