Holders of a duly issued license to dump in the area described above, and only within that area, shall be governed by the following provisions:
The application for a permit to operate dump shall be completed by the applicant on a form supplied by the City Clerk and after completion of the said application it shall be submitted to the Board of Aldermen of the City. That body after considering the application shall either direct the City Clerk to issue a license to the applicant or shall, in writing, notify the applicant that a license will not be issued.
The application submitted shall set forth the names and addresses of all persons, firms, associations, or corporations applying for such license.
The applicant will specifically set forth that the only material to be dumped will be noncombustible solids, and shall specifically set forth on the application that materials described in Section 630.010 (A) of this Chapter will not be dumped.
The application shall also set forth that the applicant agrees to permit a duly authorized official of the City, empowered to do so by the Mayor, to make at least one (1) weekly inspection of the premises where the dumping operation is being conducted.
The license fee for the operation of a dump on the described premises shall be one hundred fifty dollars ($150.00) per year, payable in advance at the time the license is issued.
The applicant will set forth that the hole or excavation to be filled will be fenced with a minimum six (6) foot high chain-link fence topped with eighteen (18) inches of barbed wire. This fence is to completely enclose the hole or excavation as well as the entrances to the hole or excavation. The entrances must be provided with gates corresponding with the fence. The driveways from the public streets to the hole or excavation must be macadam or surfaced with a material designed to avoid the creation of dust and dirt and/or the tracking of mud on the public streets.
