(b) require the administrator to at least twice per year and publicly report to the municipal council on the status of dangerous and unsightly premises including progress on remedial orders made regarding these premises;

(c) require a recorded decision from the municipal council when overturning a decision of the administrator regarding dangerous or unsightly premises; and

(d) exempt from reduction, pursuant to the Remission of Penalties Act, owners of dangerous or unsightly premises unless the property is the primary residence of the person required to pay the fine.
