No person shall erect, place or maintain upon any public street or sidewalk any pump, tank, standpipe or other apparatus used or designed or intended to be used for the purpose of containing, conveying or supplying gasoline or other volatile liquid, oil or air.
No person shall erect, place or maintain any showcase, stand, box, case or other contrivance for the display of merchandise or other obstruction of any kind or nature over, under or upon any portion of any sidewalk.
Such prohibited encumbrances and encroachments are hereby declared to be nuisances.
Whenever any nuisance, as defined in the preceding section, shall exist in front of any property, the Building Inspector or Superintendent of Streets of the Borough shall cause to be served upon the owner or occupant of such property a notice, in writing, to remove the nuisance within 30 days after the day of the regular stated meeting of the Borough Council then next to be held, or to show cause before the Borough Council, at such meeting, why the same should not be removed. Said notice shall be served personally upon the owner or occupant or by leaving the same at his usual place of abode with a member of his family above the age of 14 years. The Borough may, in its discretion, revoke such order or it may extend the time within which the encumbrance, obstruction or encroachment must be removed.
In case the owner or occupant of the property upon whom a notice has been served as provided in § 225-6 fails, neglects or refuses to remove the encroachment in compliance with said notice and within the time limited, the Borough Manager shall cause the same to be removed. The failure, neglect or refusal of the owner or occupant to comply with the notice shall also constitute a violation of this article and shall subject him to the penalty provided in § 225-13.
