No owner of property in the Village of Quogue nor his agent, employee, contractor, licensee, tenant or any person acting under authority of any of the foregoing persons shall deposit or permit the deposit of sand, sludge or other material obtained by dredging the bottom of any body of water, natural or man-made (hereinafter referred to as "wet fill"), upon land in the Village of Quogue, without first having applied for and obtained a permit therefor from the Board of Trustees. Each application for such permit shall be reviewed by a committee of the Board, consisting of the Mayor and one Trustee. Such committee may either grant such permit or refer such application to the full Board for consideration; if granted by such committee, such permit shall constitute a permit obtained from the Board of Trustees.
Before granting such permit, the Board of Trustees shall determine that the deposit of such wet fill upon land in the Village of Quogue will not be detrimental to the public health, safety or general welfare. For the purpose of making such determination, the Board of Trustees shall require the applicant to furnish such technical data as it deems necessary to determine the nature of the material to be deposited, the quantity thereof and its properties and to require the applicant to submit his plans to stabilize or treat such material so that, when dry, dust or silt will not blow from the premises, and to otherwise prevent the material from creating a nuisance.
The Board of Trustees may require the applicant to furnish a surety company performance bond for such amount and for such a term as it deems necessary to ensure the performance of the proposed stabilization or treatment plans of the applicant.
