[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Roseville 2-28-1984 by Ord. No. 895 as Ch. 189 of the 1984 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to litter or permit to be littered on any of the streets, alleys, sidewalks or other public places within the City of Roseville, by throwing, depositing, tracking, dropping, dumping or spilling any trash, paper, dirt, mud, ashes, sand, glass, leaves, garbage, debris or other materials or to deposit or cause to be deposited the same upon, or permit the same to be accumulated upon, any premises other than those designated as official city dumps.
It shall be unlawful to discharge any commercial or industrial water or any polluted or contaminated waste upon the sidewalks, streets, alleys or gutters within the City of Roseville at any time.
All officers of the Roseville Police Department and all other city employees charged with the duty of enforcement of ordinances in the City of Roseville are hereby charged with the enforcement of this chapter and are authorized to issue violation tickets for any violation of this chapter.
The City of Roseville will pay a reward of $100 to any person who signs a complaint in District Court based on personal knowledge alleging a violation of this chapter and gives testimony resulting in a conviction for the alleged violation; provided, however, that no police officer or any other employee of the city shall be eligible for a reward under the provisions of this chapter.
Any person who claims a reward pursuant to this chapter shall file a claim in writing with the City Controller, in which he or she shall state the title of the court, the names of the parties and the court number of the case in which a person was convicted of a violation of this chapter and a statement of the information which he or she gave which led to the arrest and conviction of such person. The City Controller may also require an appropriate certificate from the City Attorney to the effect that the claimant did sign a complaint in District Court based on personal knowledge alleging a violation of this chapter and gave testimony resulting in a conviction of the alleged violation.
In a proceeding for violation of this chapter involving litter from a motor vehicle, proof that the particular vehicle described in the citation, complaint or warrant was used in the violation, together with proof that the defendant named in the citation, complaint or warrant was the registered owner of the vehicle at the time of the violation, constitutes in evidence a presumption that the registered owner of the vehicle was the driver of the vehicle at the time of the violation.
The driver of a vehicle is presumed to be responsible for litter which is thrown, deposited, dropped, dumped, spilled, placed or left from the vehicle upon public or private property.
It shall be unlawful for a person who removes a vehicle wrecked or damaged in an accident on a highway, road or street to fail to remove all glass and other injurious substances dropped on the highway, road or street as a result of the accident.
No person shall dump, deposit or place any filth, garbage or refuse on the grounds or premises of another, without the specific permission of the owner thereof.
Any violation of any of the provisions of this chapter shall be punishable as provided in Chapter 1, General Provisions, Article I. The provisions of this chapter are in addition to, not in lieu of, the provisions of any other ordinance of the City of Roseville, and no repeal of any other ordinance or any section of any other ordinance is intended hereby. The court, in lieu of any other sentence imposed, may direct a substitution of litter-gathering labor, including but not limited to the litter connected with the particular violation, under the supervision of the court.
