No person shall, for hire, engage in the business of collection and/or dumping of garbage, rubbish or refuse into or within the City of Muskego until a permit for each vehicle, truck, or semitrailer truck used in such business shall have been first issued by the City Clerk or designated agent. No such permit shall be issued by the Clerk or designated agent unless proper application pursuant to this article and payment of all fees for said permit have been submitted to the Clerk or designated agent.
A designated agent may not issue a permit for his own vehicles, trucks, or semitrailer trucks or those of a subsidiary company.
Application for such permit shall be made to the City Clerk or designated agent, and the applicant shall pay to the City Clerk or designated agent at the time of filing such application a fee, which will be established periodically by resolution of the Common Council, for each vehicle, truck, or semitrailer for an annual permit or temporary thirty-day permit. Any designated agent shall prepay the City of Muskego for all permits to be issued by the agent. At time of issuance of any permit, the agent shall provide a copy of the application for refuse permit and permit number issued to the City Clerk within 24 hours of issuance.[1]
