No camper, travel trailer, motor home or recreational vehicle may be used as a temporary living facility in the Village of Carthage except in accordance with this chapter.
Any person wishing to use a camper, travel trailer, motor home or recreational vehicle as a temporary living facility within the Village of Carthage must first obtain a permit from the Village Code Officer to do so. Such permit application must demonstrate:
That there will be an adequate potable and sanitary water supply;
That there will be adequate septic and/or sewage facilities for the actual use and demand;
That the camper, travel trailer, motor home or recreational vehicle, as the case may be, is properly licensed and registered if required by law;
That it is properly connected to electrical service if required (cannot be a generator).
All campers, travel trailers, motor homes or recreational vehicles used as temporary dwellings must be located on a lot owned by the applicant and outside of any Village right-of-way such as a street or sidewalk.
Any permit issued pursuant to this chapter shall be for a period of no longer than 14 days.
The Village Board of Trustees may establish a fee for such permit from time to time by resolution.
Any person in violation of this chapter shall be guilty of a violation. Upon a finding that a violation has occurred, the court may impose a fine not to exceed $250 for each and every violation. Each week a violation continues shall be considered a separate violation. The Village may also consider whether to seek injunctive relief in a court of competent jurisdiction. Such relief shall not be precluded by the fact that fines have also been sought in local court.
