(a) If at the conclusion of the public hearing the hearing officer finds that a vehicle or part thereof is a junk vehicle, he shall order the same removed from the property as a public nuisance and disposed of as hereinafter provided. The hearing officer may impose such conditions and take such other action as he deems appropriate under the circumstances to carry out the purpose of this chapter. The hearing officer may delay the time for removal of the vehicle or part thereof if, in his opinion, the circumstances justify it. The order requiring removal shall include a description of the junk vehicle and the identification number and license number of the junk vehicle if available. (Ord. 2576, § 7, 6/27/2017)

(b) The hearing officer may assess the costs of administration and of removal of the junk vehicle against the parcel of land on which the junk vehicle is located; provided, however, that if the hearing officer finds that the junk vehicle was placed on the land without the consent of the landowner and the landowner has not subsequently acquiesced in the presence of the vehicle upon his land, no assessment of costs shall be made against the land upon which the junk vehicle was located or against the landowner. (Ord. 2576, § 7, 6/27/2017)

(c) If the hearing officer finds that the junk vehicle was abandoned upon public or private property without the express or implied consent of the owner or person in lawful possession or control of the property, the hearing officer may assess the cost of administration and removal of the vehicle against the vehicle owner. (Ord. 746, § 10, 1/12/1971; Ord. 2576, § 7, 6/27/2017)
