It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to establish, maintain, operate or conduct within the Village of Warsaw, New York, any tourist or mobile home park, unless duly licensed as hereinafter provided.
No person shall use a mobile home or recreational vehicle as a habitation except in a licensed park.
Mobile home and tourist parks shall be located only in a district of the village zoned as a Planned Residential Development (PRD) and shall be considered as a special use in that district.
Each applicant for a license hereunder shall execute an application therefor on forms to be supplied to him or her by the Code Enforcement Officer.
In the application, the applicant shall agree that, if granted the license applied for, he or she will conduct the activity or business pursuant to the regulations hereinafter set forth, and that, upon his or her failure to do such, the license shall be revoked forthwith.
Hearings on the application shall be held subject to the provisions detailed in § 163-161 of Article III of Chapter 163, Zoning, of the Village of Warsaw Code, after which the license may be granted by the Village Board.
The Village Board shall, by resolution, determine the fee for the license, which sum shall cover not only the cost of issuance of the license itself, but also the cost of making the necessary inspections of the premises to ascertain compliance as hereinafter prescribed.
Such license shall be placed and at all times be displayed in a conspicuous place at the licensee's place of activity or business for which the license is issued.
In order to ensure compliance with the provisions of this chapter, the licensee shall provide the Village of Warsaw with a performance bond in an amount to be determined by the Village Board.
Such license shall be effective from the date of its issuance until the 31st day of December of the year of such issuance, after which a reapplication must be made yearly on forms provided by the Code Enforcement Officer if the licensee desires to continue such activity or business.
Such license is personal with the licensee and does not go with the title of the land, nor may it be sold, assigned, transferred or disposed of.
Such license may be revoked by the Village Board after a public hearing thereon, at which hearing the licensee shall have an opportunity to be heard. Should the license be revoked, the Village Board may require, at the licensee's expense, the removal of the mobile homes and/or recreational vehicles remaining on the site for which the license is granted.

The foregoing provisions of this chapter shall not apply to a nonpaying guest of a resident of the Village of Warsaw who parks a mobile home or recreational vehicle upon the property of said resident for a period of time not to exceed 72 hours in any month.
Any person committing an offense against any provision of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof, be guilty of a violation pursuant to the Penal Law of the State of New York, punishable by a fine not exceeding $250 or by imprisonment for a term not exceeding 15 days, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
