A. Posting of Premises. When the City intervenes at a gathering which constitutes a public nuisance under this chapter, the premises at which such nuisance occurred shall be posted with a notice substantially in the form attached hereto as Exhibit “A” stating that a public nuisance under this chapter was caused by a gathering at the premises, the date and time of the police intervention, and that any subsequent or second police intervention with respect to a nuisance under this chapter at said premises, including a second intervention that same day or night, within one hundred twenty (120) days of the first intervention, shall result in the joint and several liability of any guests causing the public nuisance, persons who are residents or in control of the property at which the public nuisance occurred, persons who sponsored the gathering constituting the public nuisance, and owners of the premises as more fully set forth in Sections 13.48.040 through 13.48.060. The residents and persons in control of such property, and the sponsors of the event, shall be responsible for ensuring that such notice is not removed or defaced and shall be liable for a civil penalty of one hundred dollars ($100.00) in addition to any other penalties which may be due under this chapter, if such notice is removed or defaced; provided, however, that the residents of the premises or sponsor of the event, if present, shall be consulted as to the location in which such notice is posted in order to achieve both the security of the notice and its prominent display. The notice shall remain posted for the entire one hundred twenty (120) day period.

B. Mailing of Notice to Property Owner. Notice of the police intervention shall also be mailed to any property owner at the address shown on the City’s property tax assessment records and shall advise the property owner that any subsequent gathering resulting in a public nuisance within one hundred twenty (120) days on the same premises necessitating City intervention shall result in liability of the property owner for all penalties associated with such intervention as more particularly set forth below.
