Article I Removal of Home Heating Oil Tank
[Adopted 7-13-1995 by Ord. No. 541 (Ch. 5, Part 3, § 307, of the 1987 Code of Ordinances)]
The removal of a home heating oil tank is an event which requires the issuance of a Township permit if that work is done by someone other than the owner of the property. This is an existing requirement in the Township.
Hereafter, it will be the obligation of the person or business permanently removing a home heating oil tank to also remove the filler pipe or to permanently cap that filler pipe on the outside of the foundation wall. The term "permanently capped" means to take all necessary action to make it impossible for the nozzle of a home heating oil delivery truck hose to enter into the filler pipe.
At the time that a permit application is filed for the purpose of removing the home heating oil tank, the person or business issued such a permit will be notified of the requirement to remove or permanently cap the filler pipe at the time of the removal of the oil tank.
Any person or business issued a permit to remove a home heating oil tank who shall violate any provision of this article shall, upon conviction thereof, be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $1,000, together with the costs of prosecution, and, in default of payment of such fine and costs, shall be subject to imprisonment for a term not to exceed 30 days. Every day that a violation of this article continues shall constitute a separate offense.
