[HISTORY: Adopted by the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Palmyra 7-9-2001 by Ord. No. 2001-8 (Ch. 72 of the 1971 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
No person shall provide, maintain, keep or store tires in any manner on any property unless they are maintained in such a way as to preclude mosquito breeding in rainwater which collects and stagnates in tires exposed to the elements.
The provisions and prohibitions hereinafter contained and enacted are in pursuance of and for the purpose of securing and promoting the public health and general welfare of persons in the Borough of Palmyra.
The purpose of this chapter is to prevent the spread of diseases from mosquito transmission by preventing the presence of mosquito larvae in water that accumulates in tires.
Tires shall be stored in a totally enclosed structure or covered to prevent the existence or presence of any water in which mosquito larvae may mature and grow or exist. If stored outside, tires must be stored up off of the ground and covered so as not to allow the presence of stagnant water.
Any tires that cannot be used shall be considered waste material and shall be disposed of in a proper and lawful manner which prevents the collection of stagnant rain or other water therein.
It shall be the responsibility of the Municipal Code Enforcement Officer or the Burlington County Health Department to enforce this chapter.
