Subdivision of land — See Ch. 77.
No excursion boat nor any passenger from any excursion boat shall land within the Village except at a place designated by the Trustees and without first having obtained from the Village Clerk permission for landing.
The Village Board shall have control over the filling or diversion of streams, watercourses, ponds and creeks which would divert the natural flow of water.
No person, firm or corporation shall place fill on any pond or in any stream, watercourse or creek, or divert any water or any stream, watercourse or creek from its natural course, unless and until a permit shall have been applied for and secured from the Village.
In the exercise of its discretion to grant or deny any such permit, the Village Board shall give consideration to the effect such proposed filling or diversion may have on the drainage or welfare of the Village of Huntington Bay and shall deny any such permit when in its judgment the Village Board determines such proposed filling or diversion is detrimental to the welfare of the Village of Huntington Bay.
For the purposes of this article, small ponds with a surface area at mean low-water level of 10 acres or less, located in the course of a stream, watercourse or creek, shall be considered a part of such stream, watercourse or creek, and the filling of any pond shall be considered to be detrimental to the welfare of the owners of adjacent land.
