[HISTORY: Adopted by the Common Council of the City of Port Jervis 3-8-1982 by L.L. No. 3-1982 (Ch. 86, Art. III of the 1981 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
This chapter shall apply to the delivery of distillate fuels and the filling of all storage tanks with holding capacities of 500 gallons or more.
For the purposes of this chapter, the following terms shall have the meaning indicated:
The delivery truck must not be left unattended by the truck operator once the filling nozzle has been set in place for filling.
While filling is taking place, the delivery truck operator must remain within 10 feet of the truck turnoff controls until filling is complete and the nozzle removed.
All filling nozzles must be protected from accidental dislodgment by the use of a manhole guardrail.
The type and nature of the manhole guardrail shall be approved by the Director of Public Works.
In those cases where the truck operator cannot see the fill nozzle and still remain within 10 feet of the turnoff controls, a representative of the owner or lessee of the holding tank shall stand watch over the fill nozzle so as to be able to advise the truck operator of any occurrence.
In addition to the penalty set forth above, any violator shall be responsible for any and all costs incurred by the City of Port Jervis resulting from violation of this chapter.
This chapter may be enforced by any police officer, member of the City Fire Department, the Director and all employees of the Public Works Department, the Fire Inspector and the Building Official.
