The outdoor storage of abandoned motor vehicles upon privately owned properties within the Village of Munsey Park is dangerous, unsightly and a detriment to the preservation of public health, the protection of property and the safety and welfare of the residents of the Village of Munsey Park. The control of the outdoor storage of abandoned motor vehicles upon privately owned properties within the Village of Munsey Park is, therefore, regulated for the preservation of the public health, safety and welfare of the residents of the Village of Munsey Park.

It shall be unlawful for any owner, occupant, lessee, agent or tenant of any private property in a Residential District in the Village of Munsey Park to store or deposit, or suffer or permit to be stored or deposited, any abandoned vehicle outside a fully enclosed building on such property.
