[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of East Hampton 8-21-1970 (Ch. 7 of the 1971 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]
Owners of land in the Incorporated Village of East Hampton shall cut, trim or remove brush, grass, rubbish or weeds from their property.
Upon default in their doing so, the Village Trustees may cause such grass, brush, rubbish, weeds or other materials to be cut, trimmed or removed by the Village, and the total cost thereof may be assessed upon the real property on which such brush, grass, rubbish or weeds are found, and shall constitute a lien and charge on the real property on which it is levied until paid or otherwise satisfied or discharged, and shall be collected by the Village Treasurer in the manner provided by law for the collection of delinquent taxes.
If the owner of said lands is a nonresident, a notice to so cut, trim or remove such brush, grass, rubbish, weeds or other materials mailed to such owner addressed to his last known address shall be sufficient service thereof.
Any such willful refusal to so remove such objects after notice is given shall constitute a violation, the penalty for which shall be $10 per day for each additional day that the said objects are not removed after notice given.
