[Ord. No. 256 §§1 — 6, 5-6-1960]
Any person, corporation, partnership or association who shall, within the corporate limits of the City of Oak Grove, Missouri, keep or maintain on the premises owned or occupied by him/her, a junk yard, machinery storage yard or auto storage shall be required to obtain a special permit from the Board of Aldermen to keep, maintain and operate same. It shall be a matter of discretion with the Board of Aldermen as to the granting of such special permit.
Further, it is provided that any applicant for such a special permit must present proof that the applicant has or will, within thirty (30) days, construct a chain link fence entirely surrounding the location of the junk yard or machinery storage yard operation, which chain link fence shall be six (6) feet in height.
Further, it is provided that, as a condition of the granting of the special permit, the owner or operator of the business shall not burn vehicles or automobile equipment thereon, and if such burning occurs, the special permit may be revoked by the Board of Aldermen after notice to the holder of the special permit.
Any person applying for such special permit to the Board of Aldermen shall be required, if same is granted, to pay into the hands of the City Collector the sum of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) as a license fee. The term of such license shall be for the remaining part of the calendar year in which such special permit may have been granted and thereafter, upon renewal, the license shall be for the calendar year.
In the event the Board of Aldermen shall refuse to grant such special permit, then the applicant shall, if already in operation, immediately cease all operations and remove same from his/her property, and upon his/her failure to do so, such person shall be deemed guilty of committing a nuisance and upon conviction of continuing in operation shall be fined not less than twenty-five dollars ($25.00) nor more than one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each offense. It is specifically provided that each day such person shall continue to operate after the action of the Board of Aldermen in refusing such special permit shall be deemed a separate offense, chargeable hereunder.
In the event that it is reported to the Board of Aldermen that there is such an operation and business in the City of Oak Grove, the operator or owner of which refuses to apply for such special permit and comply with the provisions hereof, then such continued operation shall be deemed a misdemeanor with each day of operation being deemed a separate offense and such operator or owner upon conviction shall be fined not less than twenty-five dollars ($25.00) nor more than one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each offense.
