A. 
The unsheltered accumulation or storage of old, unused, stripped, junked and other automobiles not in good and safe operating condition, any other vehicles, machinery, implements, equipment, any parts thereof, and personal property of any kind which is no longer safely usable for the purposes for which it was manufactured is declared to be a nuisance and dangerous to the public health, safety and well-being. This section does not apply to junked vehicles stored in accordance with a permit issued pursuant to § 443-4 of this Code.[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
B. 
The owner, tenant, lessee and occupants of any lot upon which such accumulation or storage is made and the owner and lessee of the items involved in such storage, all referred to collectively as "owners," shall jointly and severally abate the nuisance by promptly moving such items into completely enclosed buildings authorized to be used for such storage purposes, if the same can be found within the Village, or otherwise by moving the items to a location outside the Village.

Whenever the owners fail to abate the nuisance, the Village shall move such items to a location of its selection, and the expense therefor shall be billed to the owners, jointly and severally, which bill shall be recoverable through the tax roll. When such items have been removed and placed in storage by the Village, they shall be sold by the Village after the lapse of such time as is provided.

The Village may order a reduction in the volume of an amplifier on complaint being made by a citizen or when such loudspeaker is a nuisance because of the volume, the method in which it is being used, or the location in which it is being operated.
A. 
This section provides for noise limitations for emitting and receiving zones located in various zoning districts as established in the Village. No person shall operate or cause to be operated on private or public property any source of sound in such a manner as to create a sound level which exceeds any of the limits set for the zone categories in Table I.

Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
D. 
Measurements.
(1) 
The measurement shall be made at or beyond the property line of the property on which such noise is generated or at or within the property line of the property on which such noise is perceived, as appropriate. Measurement shall be done at a minimum height of four feet above the ground.
(2) 
The measurement of sound shall be made either with a sound level meter that meets or exceeds the ANSI requirements of the American Standard Specification for Sound Level Meters, Type I or Type II (ANSI § 1.4, 1971), or with an octave band analyzer that meets or exceeds the requirements of ANSI § 1.6, 1960, or any subsequent nationally adopted standards superseding the above standards. In both cases, the instruments should be maintained in calibration and good working order.
(3) 
When a sound level meter is used, it shall be set to the A-weighting scale and in the FAST response mode. A windscreen shall be mounted on the microphone and the noise limitations shall be the A-scale levels set forth in Table I. An octave band analyzer may be employed when there is a concentration of sound energy within a limited number of bands, but its use shall not be restricted to such situations. When an octave band analyzer is used, a standard octave band analysis shall be conducted that spans the frequency range set forth in Table I.
E. 
Exemptions. The provisions of this section shall not apply to:
(1) 
Nonstationary farming equipment.
F. 
Analysis. Where an octave band analysis is not done, an A-weighted sound level measurement of the noise shall be taken. When this method is used, the noise limitations shall be the A-scale levels included in the table.
No person shall make or cause to be made any loud, disturbing or unnecessary sounds or noises which may annoy or disturb a person of ordinary sensibilities in or about any public street, alley or park or any private residence.
[1]
Editor's Note: Added at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
No operation or use shall cause, create, or allow air contaminants at the emission point or within the bounds at the property which exceed federal or state air pollution regulations.
The use of any property or portion thereof which is zoned in any Industrial District Zoning Classification causing earth shaking vibrations such as are created by uses, including but not limited to drop forges and hydraulic surges shall be controlled in such manner as to prevent transmission beyond the lot line of earthshaking vibrations perceptible without the aid of instruments.
A. 
Enforcement. The Village Administrator, Fire Chief, Community Development Director, Building Inspector, Director of Public Works and any other Village employee or officer charged with the duty to protect public health and safety or to maintain peace and order shall enforce those provisions of this chapter that come within the jurisdiction of their offices, and they shall make periodic inspections and inspections upon complaint to ensure that such provisions are not violated. No actions shall be taken under this section to abate a public nuisance unless the officer has inspected or caused to be inspected the premises where the nuisance is alleged to exist and has satisfied himself that a nuisance does in fact exist. Whenever practicable, the inspecting officer shall cause photographs to be made of the premises and shall file the same in the office of the Village Clerk-Treasurer.[1]
[1]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
B. 
Summary abatement. If the inspecting officer determines that a public nuisance exists within the Village and that there is great and immediate danger to the public health, safety, peace, morals or decency, the Village Administrator may direct the proper officer to cause the same to be abated and charge the cost to the owner, occupant or person causing, permitting or maintaining the nuisance, as the case may be.[2]
[2]
Editor's Note: Amended at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II). Original § 10.15(3), Abatement by Village, which immediately followed this subsection, was repealed at time of adoption of Code (see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II).
C. 
Abatement after notice. If the inspecting officer determines that a public nuisance exists on private premises but that such nuisance does not threaten great and immediate danger to the public health, safety, peace, morals or decency, he shall serve notice on the person causing or maintaining the nuisance to remove the same within 10 days. If such nuisance is not removed within 10 days, the proper officer shall cause the nuisance to be removed as provided in Subsection B of this section.
D. 
Other methods not excluded. Nothing in this chapter shall be construed as prohibiting the abatement of public nuisances by the Village or its officials in accordance with the laws of the state.
E. 
Court order. Except when necessary under Subsection B of this section, an officer hereunder shall not use force to obtain access to private property to abate a public nuisance but shall request permission to enter upon private property if such premises are occupied and, if such permission is denied, shall apply to any court having jurisdiction for an order assisting the abatement of the public nuisance.
In addition to any other penalty imposed by this chapter for the erection, contrivance, creation, continuance or maintenance of a public nuisance, the cost of abating a public nuisance by the Village shall be collected as a debt from the owner, occupant or person causing, permitting or maintaining the nuisance, and if notice to abate the nuisance has been given to the owner, such cost shall be assessed against the real estate as a special charge.
Except as otherwise provided herein, any person who shall violate any provision of this chapter, or any regulation, rule or order made hereunder, or permit or cause a public nuisance, shall be subject to a penalty as provided in § 1-4 of the Code of the Village of Bellevue.
[Added 4-8-2009]
A. 
Findings. The Village Board finds that any premises that has three or more contacts with law enforcement, Fire Marshal or other Village code enforcement official for nuisance activities has received more than the level of general and adequate law enforcement service and has placed an undue and inappropriate burden on the taxpayers of the Village. The Village Board therefore directs its officers, as provided in this section, to charge the owners of such premises the costs associated with abating the violations at premises at which nuisance activities chronically occur.[1]
