Standards. All private streets shall be constructed in accordance with Chapter 251, Land Division and Development, of this Code.
Drainage. Street ditch construction along private streets shall be required in those areas where stormwater runoff would otherwise be forced onto the traveled street's surface due to the topography. All drainage easements necessary to construct these ditches shall be previously provided by the property owner.
Maintenance costs. All costs necessary for the continued maintenance of the private street to conform to these requirements for the safe passage of emergency vehicles shall be at the property owner's expense.
Noncompliance. If inspection of the private street by the Fire Chief or Zoning Administrator indicates maintenance is needed, a letter shall be sent to the owner(s) of the property requiring the maintenance. The property owner shall have 30 days to comply. If the property owner does not comply, the work shall be ordered done by the Zoning Administrator and costs billed to the property owner. If the property owner does not pay the bill, said costs shall be assessed to the property.
Snow removal for all private driveways and streets shall be addressed by the property owner for emergency services even if the house is not occupied during the winter.
