[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Supervisors of Appomattox County 6-10-1988 (Ch. 147, Art. XIV, of the 1993 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
A County license tax is hereby imposed on every person who operates or maintains an automobile graveyard and/or a junkyard, as defined in § 33.1-348, Code of Virginia.
An annual fee of $35 shall be submitted with the license application. The fee is nonrefundable and is due every year on the anniversary date of the license being granted. Reapplication is not necessary unless the size, location and/or makeup of the junkyard is changed. In this case, the applicant must reapply. Failure to notify of changes will result in nonapproval of the revised application.
An application for a license may be obtained from the office of the County Administrator. The completed application and fee will be returned to the County Administrator for review and approval. One copy of the approved license will remain on display at the place of business. Annual renewal receipts will be affixed to the original license.
Noncompliance will be punishable as a Class 1 misdemeanor for each offense.
