Sec. 26-6.1. Hearings.
Upon request, a hearing shall be held before a designated officer of the City other than the officer who initially determined the existence of the nuisance. If, after hearing evidence, the hearing officer finds by a preponderance of the evidence that such a nuisance exists, shall order its abatement; otherwise, he shall dismiss the notice. A hearing must be requested in writing at least forty-eight (48) hours prior to the date given for the abatement of the nuisance. The hearing shall be an informal administrative proceeding rather than a judicial-type trial and while each party shall have the opportunity to present pertinent information and to question adverse witnesses the rules of evidence shall not apply. The decision of the designated officer is final and not subject to appeal. (Ord. No. O-93-260, 9-28-93)
