[HISTORY: Adopted by the Village Board of the Village of Grafton as Title 14, Ch. 14.16, of the 1979 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It is unlawful for any person to establish, operate or maintain, or permit to be established, operated or maintained, upon any property owned, leased or controlled by him, a trailer camp within the limits of the Village, without having first secured a license for each such camp from the Village Board, pursuant to this title. Such license shall expire one year from the date of issuance but may be renewed under the provisions of this title for additional periods of one year.
The application for such license or the renewal thereof shall be filed with the Village Clerk and shall be accompanied by a fee of $100 for each 50 spaces or fraction thereof in the existing or proposed camp and a surety bond in the sum of $5,000. This bond shall guarantee the collection by the licensee of the monthly parking permit fee provided for in Chapter 14.52 of this title and the payment of such fees to the Village Clerk; the payment by the licensee of any fine or forfeiture including legal costs imposed upon or levied against the licensee for a violation of the ordinances of the Village pursuant to which the license is granted; and shall also be for the use and benefit and may be prosecuted and recovery had thereon by any person, firm or corporation who may be injured or damaged by reason of the licensee violating the provisions of this title. A fee of $10 shall be paid for each transfer of a license.
The application for a license or a renewal thereof shall be made on forms furnished by the Village Clerk and shall include the name and address of the owner in fee of the tract (if the fee is vested in some person other than the applicant, a duly verified statement by that person that the applicant is authorized by him to construct or maintain the trailer camp and make the application), and such a legal description of the premises upon which the trailer camp is or will be located as will readily identify and definitely locate the premises. The application shall be accompanied by two copies of the camp plan showing the following, either existing or as proposed:
The extent and area used for camp purposes;
Roadways and driveways;
Location of units for trailers;
Location and number of sanitary conveniences, including toilets, washrooms, laundries and utility rooms to be used by occupants of units;
Method and plan of sewage disposal;
Method and plan of garbage removal;
Plan for water supply;
Plan for electrical lighting of units. If the existing or proposed camp is designed to serve nondependent trailer units, such plans shall clearly set forth the location of all sewer and water pipes and connections.
No trailer camp license shall be issued until the Village Clerk notifies the Chief of Police, Village Health Inspector, Chief of the Fire Department and Building Inspector, or their authorized agent of such application, and these officials shall inspect or cause to be inspected each application and the premises on which trailers will be located to ensure compliance with the regulations, ordinances and laws applicable thereto. These officials shall furnish the Village Board in writing the information derived from such investigation and a statement as to whether the applicant and the premises meet the requirements of the department for whom the officer is certifying. No license shall be renewed without a reinspection of the premises. For the purpose of making inspections and securing enforcement, such officials or their authorized agents shall have the right and are empowered to enter on any premises on which a trailer is located, or about to be located, and to inspect the same and all accommodations connected therewith at any reasonable time.
The Village Board is authorized to revoke any license or permit issued pursuant to the terms of this title in accordance with § 66.0435, Wis. Stats.
