[Adopted by Ord. No. 16]
No person or persons, firm, association or corporation shall construct or cause or permit to be constructed a curb or sidewalk of cement, concrete, stone, brick or other similar substance on any street, highway or other public place within the Village of Island Park without first obtaining from the Board of Trustees of said Village the proper grade for such curb or sidewalk upon such street, avenue, highway or public place upon which said curb or sidewalk is to be constructed.
It shall be the duty of such person or persons, firm, association or corporation desiring to construct such curb or sidewalk to make a written application therefor to the Board of Trustees of the Village, designating the street, avenue, highway or public place upon which such curb or sidewalk is to be constructed, and to deposit with such application a sum as set from time to time by the Board of Trustees, which will be returned to the depositor upon the completion of the work, properly certified by the Street Commissioner.
In the event that any person or persons, firm, association or corporation, after obtaining such grade for any such sidewalk or curb, shall fail, within six months after obtaining such grade, to construct such sidewalk or curb as set forth in said application, such applicant shall pay to the Village Clerk of the Village of Island Park, upon demand, the difference between the sum so deposited as aforesaid and the amount certified to the Village Clerk by the Village Engineer, or other civil engineer furnishing such grade, as representing the fair cost of furnishing such grade.
It shall be the duty of the Village Clerk to furnish suitable blanks for application for such grade, which shall contain a clause obligating the applicant to pay as provided in § 510-12 in case the applicant shall fail to construct such sidewalk or curb within the time hereinbefore specified.
Any person committing an offense against this article shall be guilty of a violation punishable by a fine not exceeding $250 or by imprisonment for a period not exceeding 15 days for each offense, or by both such fine and imprisonment.
