Any building moved into or from one location to another within the Town must first be approved by the Town Board.

No building shall be allowed to remain overnight upon any street crossing or intersection. Lighted lanterns shall be kept in conspicuous places at each end of the building during darkness. Every permit to move a building shall state all conditions to be complied with, designate the route to be taken and limit the time for moving.
