24.40.020 Dirt on Streets from Construction Projects.

If dirt or debris falls on any public right-of-way and such debris originates from a construction project for which a building, plumbing, or electrical permit has been issued, it is unlawful for the permit holder and/or owner not to remove it immediately. Failure of either the owner and/or permit holder to remove the spillage within 24 hours after notification given either orally or in writing may result in the Director gaining compliance by any of the methods outlined in Section 24.10.060 of this Title.
