[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Wolcott as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No parade or public assemblage shall be held on any public street in said Village, unless written permission therefor be first obtained from the Village Board. The Village Board may impose such conditions and regulations as it may deem proper and necessary for the public health and safety as a condition precedent to granting such permission.
[Amended 8-15-2006 by L.L. No. 1-2006]
The owners and occupants of lots abutting on streets are required to keep the sidewalks in front of such premises free and clear of all snow, ice, dirt and other obstructions, and said owners and occupants are further required to keep such walks in a safe condition for public travel and to repair and remedy all defects such as, but not limited to, upheavals, cracks, missing pieces and crumbling. Where a homeowner removes any or all of a sidewalk for any reason, the homeowner is responsible to have that sidewalk replaced within one year. After a sidewalk is removed, the area must be accessible to Village equipment until the construction has been completed. All sidewalks shall be four feet wide by four inches thick and constructed of concrete. All corner lots shall be handicapped accessible. Sidewalks will have three inches of crushed stone base with wire mesh or fiber reinforcement added to concrete. Expansion joints shall be every four feet. Concrete shall be 3,500 psi test or greater. Sidewalks are to be broom finished. All sidewalks crossing driveways shall be constructed of concrete. (Sidewalks of other material are not allowed.) For failure to obey the provisions of this section, the Village Board may cause such sidewalks to be cleared or repaired, as the case may be, and may assess the expense thereof upon the adjoining land.
It shall be unlawful for any person to ride a bicycle on the sidewalks on Main Street between the intersections of Main Street and Mill Street and Main Street and Lake Avenue and New Hartford Street. A violation of this section shall constitute a traffic infraction and shall be punishable accordingly.
It shall be unlawful and all persons are prohibited from placing or causing to be placed in any street or alley within the corporate limits of the Village of Wolcott any waste, refuse, papers, brush, weeds, sticks, stones, ashes or other material detracting in any way from the cleanliness thereof, or endangering public health, or the safety of any building or property, and no person shall burn any matter in any such places except in metal containers.
Any persons violating this article shall be punishable for the first offense by a fine not exceeding $25 or by imprisonment in the Wayne County Jail for 25 days, or both, and for a second or subsequent offense by a fine not exceeding $50 or by imprisonment in the Wayne County Jail for 50 days, or both.
No person shall place any object or display on any public sidewalk in the Village of Wolcott in such manner as to interfere with the free and proper use of any portion of said sidewalk by the public, except not to exceed over three feet from the building. Anything that is a hazard, in the opinion of the Village Police, without fastening, shall be deemed a violation.
The temporary obstruction of a sidewalk for the purpose of making repairs or alterations thereon shall not be deemed a violation of this article.
The Village Board, upon application by any individual, corporation or group, and upon finding that the best interests of the Village will be served thereby, may grant a permit allowing the placing of sales displays and merchandise on the public sidewalk; provided that in no event shall such display be such as to leave less than a three-and-one-half-foot width of sidewalk available for use by the public; and provided further that no such permit shall be issued for a period of more than two days.
A violation of this article shall be punishable by a fine not exceeding $25.
This article shall be effective on and after the 18th day of April, 1967.
