[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Montebello 10-21-1992 by L.L. No. 3-1992. Amendments noted where applicable.]
This chapter shall be cited and may be referred to hereinafter as the “Numbering of Buildings and Properties to Facilitate E-911 System Law of the Village of Montebello."
The Rockland County Legislature has authorized the installation of an E-911 system within the county which should reduce the response time for emergency services. This will benefit the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the Village of Montebello. However, in order to accomplish this purpose, the Board of Trustees recognizes the need to require that all parcels of real property within the Village be numbered, and that the numbers be conspicuously placed on said parcels so as to be identifiable for response by emergency services.
[Amended 6-22-2005 by L.L. No. 4-2005]
The County of Rockland E-911 System shall have authority to assign numbers to every parcel of real property within the Village. Such numbers shall be sequential with odd numbers on one side of a street and even numbers on the other side. In the event a parcel of vacant real property is legally able to be subdivided, such parcel shall be allocated as many numbers as may be necessary to accomplish the purpose of this chapter. All property owners shall be notified in writing of the number assigned to the property owned.
The number or numbers assigned to a parcel of real property as set forth in § 57-3 of this chapter shall be conspicuously shown by placement on the principal building situated on the lot. Such numbers shall be placed on the side of the building facing the street upon which the property is situated. In the event the principal building on a lot is set back more than 50 feet from the street line, the number or numbers shall be placed upon a mailbox, gate post, fence or other appropriate place so that it shall be visible from the street.
Numbers on residential buildings shall be not less than three inches in height. Numbers on nonresidential buildings shall be not less than four inches in height. All numbers shall be made of a durable and clearly visible material and shall be in a contrasting color to the building or place upon which it is affixed and, if possible, made of a reflective material..

[Amended 6-22-2005 by L.L. No. 4-2005]
Within 30 days after notification that a number has been assigned to a parcel of real property, the owner of said real property or the agent of such owner shall place or cause to be placed on such real property the number or numbers assigned to such real property by the County of Rockland E-911 System in the manner provided in § 57-4 of this chapter. Such owner or agent shall be required to maintain the placement of such number or numbers in accordance with such section.
[Amended 6-22-2005 by L.L. No. 4-2005]
Any owner of real property or the agent of such owner who violates any of the provisions of § 57-4 and/or 57-5 shall be guilty of a violation and shall be subject to a fine not to exceed $250 and/or imprisonment not to exceed 15 days for each such violation. Each day on which such violation continues shall constitute a separate violation.
This chapter enacted pursuant to the authority of Article 10 of the Municipal Home Rule Law of the State of New York, shall take effect immediately upon filing with the Secretary of State.
