[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Rockville Centre 2-22-1971 by L.L. No. 1-1971 as Ch. 22 of the 1971 Code.]
It shall be unlawful for any person to operate within the Village limits any electrical apparatus, device, machine or equipment, other than that of a duly licensed broadcasting station, which needlessly causes interference with radio and television reception, when such interference can reasonably be eliminated by shielding, altering, adjusting or otherwise taking corrective measures to eliminate the fault.
The enforcement of this chapter shall be entrusted to the Chief Engineer of the Village, whose duty it shall be to investigate all complaints of radio and television interference, to locate the source of such interference and to determine the best and most practical ways of securing its elimination.
Upon findings made of the source of such interference, the Chief Engineer of the Village is authorized to issue directions to the owner or operator of the offending apparatus, device, machine or equipment, requiring him to make the necessary adjustments or corrections within a specified length of time.
Failure to comply with the directions of the Chief Engineer of the Village within the time specified by him shall constitute a violation of this chapter.
Upon properly identifying himself, the Chief Engineer of the Village or his duly designated deputy on that behalf shall have the right of access to any premises at a reasonable time for the purpose of inspecting the installation and operation of any device, machine or equipment coming within the purview of this chapter; and it shall be a violation hereof for any reason to interfere with such official or to hinder him in the discharge of his duties.
