The proper officers of Cecil Township of Washington County are hereby authorized and directed to do all acts necessary and proper to establish, implement and enforce a standardized system of property address numbering to be in compliance with the requirements of the ALI (Automatic Location Information) needs of the Washington County Enhanced 9-1-1 System.
Each building to which a street number has been assigned shall have such number on a background of contrasting color and displayed in a position easily observed and readable from the public right-of-way (which shall include the marking of driveways or freestanding mailboxes where conditions necessitate). All numbers shall be in Arabic numerals at least four inches high and a width of 1/2 inch. Numbers should be preferably reflective and displayed on or near the front entrance of the building.
It shall be the obligation of the owners of the property to which numbers are being assigned to comply with the standards set by this chapter as directed by the proper officers of Cecil Township.
Upon completion, a properly verified copy of the address numbering system shall be reported and delivered by the Township to the proper officers of Washington County Enhanced 9-1-1.
Any person, firm or corporation who shall violate any provision of this chapter, upon conviction thereof in an action brought before a Magisterial District Judge in the manner provided for the enforcement of summary offenses under the Pennsylvania Rules of Criminal Procedure, shall be sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $1,000 plus costs and, in default of payment of said fine and costs, to a term of imprisonment not to exceed 90 days. Each day that a violation of this chapter continues or each section of this chapter which shall be found to have been violated shall constitute a separate offense.
