No satellite dish antenna shall be located in any front yard of any property.
Satellite dish antennas, where permitted, shall be set back from any side or rear property line by a minimum of 25 feet.
Satellite dish antennas may be mounted upon any building roof, provided that they are not visible from any street.
No satellite dish antenna shall be so placed either on the property or mounted on any building roof as to permit it to be visible from the street. It shall also be suitably screened from view from adjoining properties.
A building permit shall be required for the construction or erection of any satellite dish antenna. The application for such permit shall show the proposed compliance with the requirements of this ordinance.

The fee for the construction or erection of a satellite dish antenna or maintenance of such a movable antenna within the borough shall be a flat fee of $15.
Failure to obtain the required building permit or violation of this ordinance shall result in a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $300. Each day that this ordinance is violated shall constitute a separate offense and shall be fined in accordance with this ordinance.
This ordinance shall not be construed to regulate those forms of communication which are federally regulated and require licensing by the federal government through any of its agencies to the individual receiving or sending signals by means of such antenna or antennas.
If any Article, section, subsection, sentence, clause or phrase of this ordinance is for any reason held to be unconstitutional or invalid, such decision shall not affect the remaining portions of this ordinance.
This ordinance shall take effect immediately upon its final passage and publication as required by law.
