[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Brockport 9-7-1976 by L.L. No. 5-1976[1]. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Building construction code and administration — See Chs. 10 and 11.
Code enforcement — See Ch. 59.
Editor's Note: Former Ch. 15, Disorderly Persons, adopted 5-4-1908, was repealed 11-19-1973.
No dwelling, house, barn, outbuilding or other like structures shall be moved upon any street, highway or public place within the Village unless a written permit shall first be obtained for such purpose from the Village Clerk, as hereinafter provided. It shall be unlawful to move the same without such permit or at any time or in any manner except as prescribed in such permit.
A permit for such purpose shall be issued by the Village Clerk only upon the Village Building Inspector approving the same and shall provide the time, manner and streets through which the same shall be moved and shall contain any other conditions deemed necessary to properly safeguard the public safety or welfare.
Every application for a permit hereunder shall be accompanied by a fee of $50 and by a certificate of insurance, in a 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 for bodily injury in the amount of not less than $1,000,000/$2,000,000 and for property damage in the amount of not less than $100,000/$300,000 to save the Village harmless from all claims, actions and proceedings brought by any person for personal injury, property damage or injury to property resulting from or occasioned by any default by the Village, its employees or agents, or by the person to whom the permit is issued or anyone acting thereunder. The policy shall also protect the Village in the sum of $100,000 against any damage caused to any street or other public property by reason of such house-moving.
If, in the opinion of the Building Inspector, 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.
Any person convicted of a violation of this chapter shall be fined not more than $250 or be imprisoned for a term of not more than 30 days, or both, such penalty to be in addition to any other remedy permitted by this chapter and by statute and not exclusive thereof.
