The movement or transportation of any building from any point or place to another within the Village or from without the Village into the Village, the dimensions of which are greater than 10 feet by 15 feet and 10 feet in height, across or upon the public highways, streets, avenues and thoroughfares of the Village of Monticello is hereby prohibited unless the following conditions are met:
Such movement is of a building which meets all Monticello Building Code regulations now in effect.
The location to which said building is moved conforms to existing zoning regulations and the necessary permit has been applied therefor and issued by the Village Manager.
Such movement is made at a time approved by the Chief of Police.
Authorization by Board. No person shall move a building or other structure upon or across any street of the Village unless a permit therefor has been issued by the Village Manager upon authorization by the Board of Trustees.
Application form. As a prerequisite to securing a permit, an application must be filed with the Village Clerk, containing:
The name and address of the applicant.
The size and structural details of the object to be moved.
The present location of such object and the place within the Village to which it is to be moved.
Certificate by the telephone company and the electric utility indicating that satisfactory arrangements have been made covering the relocation of the utilities.
Each application shall be accompanied by a certificate of insurance in form approved by the Village Attorney and issued by an insurance company authorized to do business in this state, running to the Village, guaranteeing that the applicant has provided public liability coverage of $100,000 and property damage insurance in the amount of $250,000 to save the Village harmless from all claims, actions and proceedings brought by any person for injury to person or property resulting from or occasioned by any fault or default by the person to whom the permit is issued or anyone acting thereunder on his behalf. The policy shall also protect the Village, in the sum of $10,000, against any damages caused to any street trees or other public property by reason of such house moving. In addition, every applicant shall post a ninety-day completion bond assuring the reerection, modification, alteration or other work to be done on the building in conformity with the plans approved by the Village Engineer or his deputy.
The fee for such permit and security deposit shall be as established from time to time by resolution of the Board of Trustees.[1]
Editor's Note: The current fee schedule is on file in the Village offices, as noted in Ch. A290.
If, in the opinion of the Board, the moving of the structure seems likely to cause injury to property, trees, electric wires or otherwise cause hardship or inconvenience, or seems to be not conducive to public safety or welfare, such permit may be refused, the deposit fees returned and the bonds canceled.
