(J) Clean up of construction dirt on streets. Contractors and subcontractors are responsible for the daily clean up of dirt and other debris that is tracked onto streets from their construction sites. If the dirt is not removed and a clean street established within forty-eight (48) hours from the date and time of the notice of violation, a deduction of $500.00 from the deposit will be made for each violation of this section, and the deposit must be replenished after any such deduction is made. In order to reduce the amount of construction dirt that can be tracked onto the street, construction entrances, such as future driveways, must be graveled or covered with crushed rock, or a material that is found suitable by the development services director. The development services director may require written documentation showing a schematic of the temporary construction entrance/exit for the property, including location and material to be used prior to issuance of the building permit. The general contractor is responsible for seeing that all trades, delivery and supply companies only use the approved entrance, and the general contractor and/or property owner is responsible for complying with the requirements of the subsection. When a violation of this subsection is found on the day of a street construction project, or up to five (5) days after a street improvement project has been completed, the deduction amount will be doubled for each day there is a violation.
