Each owner of property in the Village of Hewlett Neck shall maintain and care for or replace any shrubs or plantings in the area of a public right-of-way adjoining such property and located between such owner's property and the paved area of any public street or road in such adjoining right-of-way.
Without prior permission of the Village of Hewlett Neck, no person shall erect or place any fixtures, structures or materials in the area of a public right-of-way located between the area of any public street or road and the boundary of any adjoining property.
Where the Board of Trustees has reason to believe that any person has violated any provision of this section, the Board of Trustees may give written notice to such person, in such manner as may be determined by the Board of Trustees, to appear before the Board of Trustees to be heard in connection with such matter and with respect to any remedies which the Board of Trustees may elect pursuant to this section. After such appearance, the Board of Trustees may determine that such person is in violation of a provision of this section and may require such person to take such action as may be determined by the Board of Trustees to be appropriate to remedy said violation. If such person fails to complete such action within the time specified therefor by the Board of Trustees, the Board of Trustees may direct that the Village perform such action and that the cost of such performance shall be reimbursed to the Village by each such person, together with the costs incurred by the Village, including legal expenses, for collection of such reimbursement. If any such person is an owner of real property in the Village, the amount of such reimbursement shall be assessed against such real property and collected in the same manner as provided for assessment and collection of taxes on real property. The remedies provided in this subsection shall be in addition to any other penalties which may be applicable by law for any violation of this section.
