My history under all the IPMC codes, early on, I had our municipal code emend the "Failure to Obey" laws to include "Building Officials", so that when I post them with a notice under Section 108, if someone enters the premise, PD can arrest for "Failure to Obey", and toss them out. Keep securing them, place liens, on the property, sooner or later, the jurisdiction can take action to foreclose.

We are fairly aggressive. Red tag with 20 days to appeal my decision. If no appeal I let the owner propose a reasonable date by which they will have demo completed. If they are unreasonable I give them 30-60 days to remove. Every day beyond deadline is a potential fine of $100.00 plus court costs.
