(Amended by Ordinance No. 176955, effective October 9, 2002.)
A. “Approved” as used in this Chapter where it applies to
articles, materials, and methods means such articles as are approved by the
Health Officer, who must approve each article, material, or method used in the
exclusion of rodents.
B. “Impervious material” includes glass, wood, noncorrosive
steel or iron and noncorrosive metal screen. The mesh of such screen shall
not be larger than 1/4 inch and the thickness of the wire not less than No. 20,
Brown and Sharpe gauge. Concrete masonry or other material which upon
investigation by the Bureau of Development Services of this City shall be found
to be of such hardness and texture as to effectively prevent penetration by
rats. If any such material be found by the Health Officer to be
insufficient to exclude rats by reason of decay, rot, breakage or other local or
special condition, it shall no longer be termed impervious.
