[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Woodbury as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 8-12-2008 by L.L. No. 6-2008]
The owners of all lands having frontage on Village, county or state highways within the Village of Woodbury, except lands within the Palisades Interstate Park and United States Military Reservation, shall, pursuant to § 4-412 of the Village Law, remove from such lands all rubbish and shall refrain from depositing rubbish on any portion of their lands which is visible from a public highway. If any such landowner shall fail to remove such rubbish, the Code Enforcement Officer shall serve upon him either personally or by certified mail a notice requiring him to do so. If, within the time stated in the notice, the rubbish shall not be removed, the Highway Department shall remove such rubbish and the costs thereof shall be assessed by the Village Board against the real property from which such rubbish was removed and shall constitute a lien and charge on said real property until paid or otherwise satisfied or discharged and shall be collected in the same manner and at the same time as other Village charges. The foregoing provision shall not apply to any lands lying within the bounds of state or county highways.
Dumping of garbage, trash, refuse or rubbish or other waste or discarded material on any lands within the Village is hereby prohibited, except at a public dump operated by the Village of Woodbury or a private dump operated under a special permit of the Zoning Board of Appeals, which shall grant such permit after a public hearing when, in its judgment, the public convenience, safety and welfare will be substantially served and the appropriate use of neighboring properties will not be injured thereby, and subject to such conditions and safeguards as may be imposed by the Board to carry out the foregoing objectives.
Littering or the deposit of any dirt, filth, waste or rubbish in any street, highway, sidewalk or public place is hereby prohibited. The Superintendent of Highways shall erect signs on all public highways within the Village warning motorists that littering is prohibited and stating the maximum penalty for violation of this section.
Any person committing an offense against any provision of this article shall, upon conviction, be guilty of a violation pursuant to the Penal Law of the State of New York, punishable by a fine not to exceed $1,000 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 15 days, or by both such fine and imprisonment. The continuance of an offense for each day (24 hours) shall be deemed a distinct and separate violation.
