[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of South Nyack 9-22-1992 by L.L. No. 2-1992. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Rockland County Legislature has authorized the installation of an E911 system within the county which should reduce the response time for emergency services in every town and village throughout the county, resulting in benefit to the health, safety and welfare of all residents. In order to accomplish this purpose, the Board of Trustees of the Village of South Nyack recognizes the need to require that all parcels of real property within the Village be numbered and that the numbers must be conspicuously placed on said parcels so as to be identifiable for response by emergency services.
The Assessor of the Village of South Nyack shall have authority to assign numbers to every parcel of real property within the Village. Such numbers shall be sequential, with odd numbers on one side of a street and even numbers on the other side. In the event that a parcel of vacant real property is legally able to be subdivided, such parcel shall be allocated as many numbers as may be necessary to accomplish the purpose of this chapter. All property owners shall be notified, in writing, of the number assigned to the property owned.
A. 
The number or numbers assigned to a parcel of real property as set forth in § 100-2 of this chapter shall be conspicuously shown by placement on the principal building situated on the lot. Such numbers shall be placed on the side of the building facing the street upon which the property is situated. In the event that the principal building on a lot is set back more than 50 feet from the street line, the number or numbers shall be placed upon a mailbox, gatepost, fence or other appropriate place so that they shall be visible from the street.
B. 
Address numbers shall be Arabic numerals or alphabet letters, a minimum of four inches high, with a minimum stroke width of 0.5 inch. All numbers shall be made of a durable and clearly visible material and shall be in a contrasting color to the building or place upon which they are affixed.
[Amended 6-25-2019 by L.L. No. 3-2019]
Within 30 days after notification that a number has been assigned to a parcel of real property, the owner of said real property or the agent of such owner shall place or cause to be placed on such real property the number or numbers assigned to such real property by the Assessor in the manner provided in § 100-3 of this chapter. Such owner or agent shall be required to maintain the placement of such number or numbers in accordance with such § 100-3.
[Amended 6-25-2019 by L.L. No. 3-2019]
Any owner of real property or the agent of such owner who or which commits, takes part or assists in any violation of any provisions of this chapter shall, upon conviction, be subject to a Type A penalty as set forth in § 1-15 of the Village Code.
