[Added 4-5-1999 by Ord. No. 1999-1]
Stormwater management facilities in residential developments owned by a homeowners' association will be accepted for maintenance by the Town of Mount Airy in accordance with the following provisions and procedures:
That the owners of at least 60% of the properties served by the stormwater management facilities as well as the homeowners' association itself request, in writing, that the Town take over maintenance of the specified stormwater management facility. Where any unit or home within the homeowners' association is owned by two or more persons, the signatures of all co-owners will be required for the purpose of determining whether 60% or more of the properties served thereby have requested that the Town take over maintenance. If the homeowners' association documents require a higher percentage than 60% of owners to approve a conveyance of any homeowners' association property, then the written request to the Town must meet that higher percentage requirement; and
That the Town has caused a review of the facility to be undertaken by the Town Engineer and/or by the appropriate agency of Carroll County, Maryland, then charged with the responsibility for inspection and approval of stormwater facilities generally within said county, and that as a result thereof, it is determined that said facility is found to be in proper operating condition; and
That the homeowners' association shall reimburse the Town for the reasonable costs of the above-mentioned inspection; and
That the homeowners' association shall cause to be prepared, at its expense, a deed which shall be subject to approval by the Town Attorney as to form and legal sufficiency, which deed shall convey the stormwater management facility in fee simple to the Town, including a perpetual easement for sufficient access to the same from a public road, together with sufficient area surrounding the said facility in order to allow for proper future maintenance of the same; and
Until said facility is accepted by the Town, maintenance shall continue to be the responsibility of the homeowners' association.
