Building construction — See Ch. 105.
Sewers — See Ch. 151.0
Any plumber intending to conduct the business of plumbing in the Town of Sweden must register personally in the office of the Town Clerk and pay the required fee to obtain a plumber's license. A license will not be issued until a written examination provided by the Town is satisfactorily passed or waived, where the applicant is currently licensed in another municipality within the county.
All licenses issued hereunder shall expire on the 31st day of December of the year in which they are issued and, upon the payment of a fee, may be renewed within 30 days preceding such expiration. Such renewals shall be for one year from the first day of January in each year.
The Town Clerk may refuse to issue a license to any person until he has received or obtained satisfactory evidence or proof that the applicant is entitled to such license.
The Town Clerk, after a hearing, may suspend or revoke the license herein provided for, for a violation by the licensee, his agents or employees of any law or code of the State of New York or ordinance or law of the Town of Sweden relating to the conduct of the plumbing business.
It shall be unlawful for any person to conduct the trade, business or calling of plumbing in the Town of Sweden unless he shall hold a license and shall obtain the appropriate plumbing permit. This section shall not apply to a person or a member of his household doing repair work on his own, provided that he has permission from the Code Enforcement Officer to do such work, but in no event shall any person perform work or repairs in the Sweden sanitary sewer without a special permit from the Town.
The Town Board from time to time shall set a schedule of license fees and plumbing permit fees, including a rate per opening, which shall be incorporated in the Rules and Regulations for Building Control Fees.
Any person who violates this chapter shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, subject to a fine of not more than $1,000 or imprisonment for not more than one year, or both, for each violation. Each day's continued violation shall constitute a separate additional offense.
