effective October 9, 2002.)
Harbor Master in coordination with the Director of the Bureau of Development
Services shall cause to be inspected, not less than every 5 years, all docks,
sheds, warehouses, or other structures within the harbor limits, which shall
extend out over water or unfilled land. After the inspection, a safe
loading limit, in pounds, shall be posted at the entrance to the building, and
no loading shall be over this limit at any time.

and the load limit shall be posted at the entrance to the structure; and if
found unsafe, he/she may order the structure closed until repaired or
removed. The Harbor Master or his/her assistants shall enforce these
orders when so notified by the Director of the Bureau of Development Services.
C. They do
not assume the responsibility for the safe manner and use of any structure, or
damages from any loading, except where the structures are owned in whole or in
part by the City.
