Building wrecking – Pest control

Every application for a permit for the demolition of any building or other structure shall include an affidavit from a structural pest control business licensed by the State of Illinois that the site was inspected for rodents and indicate whether or not rodents were found at the site; provided that no affidavit shall be required if the demolition is a result of emergency action taken by the city, or if the department of streets and sanitation conducts rodent abatement measures at a site that the city schedules for demolition. If the affidavit indicates that rodents were found at the site, then the application shall include proof that rodent abatement measures have been conducted at the site by a structural pest control business licensed by the State of Illinois no more than 14 days prior to filing the application.

Any person who knowingly makes any false statement, submits any false information or misrepresents any information required under this section shall be fined not less than $100.00 nor more than $500.00 for the first offense and shall on finding of guilty thereof for a second or subsequent offense be fined the sum of $1,000.00 for such offense. Any structural pest control business which has been found guilty of violating this section two or more times within a three year period shall be prohibited from filing any affidavits under this section for a period of two years.

For purposes of this section, every act or omission which constitutes a violation of this section by an officer, director, manager, agent or other employee of any person shall be deemed to be the act of the person and such person shall be liable for all penalties and sanctions provided by this section in the same manner as if such act or omission had been done or omitted by the person.
