The previous website and contact numbers should answer your question on this. I cannot suggest anything illegal and can only send you to the source. They should have a list of fines for various items including blight.
As far as what other options -- I don't believe there are any. You're not supposed to occupy the home at all until the items are done, but I am not sure what the fines are.
I haven't done one in Detroit in a while, but I have done them recently in Westland, Garden City and Wayne...same basic concept.
