[Amended 6-5-2000 by Ord. No. 2000-1]
It shall be unlawful for any person to park an unlicensed motor vehicle, trailer or travel trailer or a motor vehicle, trailer or travel trailer with an expired license or to abandon the same for a period longer than seven days on any public road, highway, street, avenue or alley in the Town of Mount Airy. The Town of Mount Airy is hereby authorized to take possession of and remove any such motor vehicle or trailer or travel trailer so parked or abandoned in violation of this section by means of Town equipment or by contract and may cause the same to be stored either upon Town property or upon private property by suitable contract. The cost of removing or towing the same and of storing the same must be paid by the owner before the same may be repossessed and such charge will be in addition to any fine or other penalty imposed for the violation of this section. If the owner fails to repossess the same within 30 days after it is impounded, the same may be sold by the Town at public auction and the proceeds of such sale, after payment of the cost thereof, shall be applied first to reimbursing the Town for the cost of removing or towing the vehicle, trailer or travel trailer and of storing the same; second, to the payment of all liens on the same and the balance to be paid to the owner if claimed within six months from the date of sale. If the owner fails to claim such balance within such period of time, it shall be deemed to be forfeited and become part of the general funds of the Town.
