(a) Upon request by the owner of any house, building or other property in the city, the zoning official or his or her designee shall furnish the correct number for such property to the person so applying for same; provided, however, that such applicant shall furnish the zoning official or his or her designee with the proper legal description of such property sufficient to enable him or her to correctly identify same.
(b) The zoning official or his or her designee is hereby authorized and directed to designate the proper number for all houses or other buildings fronting upon any street, avenue or other highway within the city, in accordance with the system and method of numbering herein set forth. In all cases where existing houses or buildings are not numbered, or where a number is now being used which is not in compliance with the provisions of this article, and when buildings may hereafter be erected, it shall be the duty of the zoning official or his or her designee, either in person, by mail or by some authorized representative, to notify the owner of such building as to the proper number therefor, and it shall thereupon be the duty of such owner to cause the proper number to be placed upon said building within thirty (30) days after receipt of such notice from the zoning official or his or her designee.
