Every owner or occupant of property in Tredyffrin Township on which a quarry is located shall erect a fence around the same in such a manner as to preclude trespassers or other unauthorized persons.
The fences shall be constructed in such a manner and of materials sufficient to prevent unauthorized persons from gaining access to such quarries. The fences shall be at least six feet in height and constructed so as to prevent access under or through the fence.
The fences shall be erected and properly maintained at the expense of the owner or occupant of the property on which the quarry is located.
For any and every violation of the provisions of this chapter, the owner or occupant of property on which a quarry is located, upon being found liable therefor in a civil enforcement proceeding, shall pay a fine of not more than $600, plus all court costs, including reasonable attorney's fees, incurred by the township in the enforcement of this chapter. No judgment shall be imposed until the date of the determination of the violation by the District Justice and/or Court. If the defendant neither pays nor timely appeals the judgment, the township may enforce the judgment pursuant to the applicable rules of civil procedure. Each day a violation exists shall constitute a separate offense. Further, the appropriate officers or agents of the township are hereby authorized to seek equitable relief, including injunction, to enforce compliance herewith.
