[HISTORY: Adopted by the Common Council of the City of Mayville 2-13-1989 by Ord. No. 695-89 as §§ 8.13 and 8.20 of the 1989 Code; amended by Ord. No. 728-91. Subsequent amendments noted where applicable.]
No person shall move any building into or within the City without a permit from the Building Inspector upon 30 days' notice.
Application for a permit shall be made on a form provided by the Building Inspector.
The permit fee shall be as set by the Common Council.
Before a permit is issued, the mover must deposit with the Building Inspector a corporate surety bond, approved by the City Attorney, in the amount of $10,000, conditioned that the mover shall save the City harmless from any liability arising out of the move and shall restore any street damaged by the move. This provision may be waived by the Building Inspector for small buildings.
[Amended by Ord. No. 927-2002]
Before a moving permit shall be issued, the applicant shall submit to the City Clerk a certificate of insurance evidencing that the applicant has in force and will maintain during the term of the permit public liability insurance of not less than $500,000 for any one person, $1,000,000 for any one accident and $1,000,000 for property damage.
Prior to the issuance of said permit, the owner or mover shall certify that he has notified all public utilities whose lines or poles may be interfered with during the movement of the building. Such utilities shall take whatever steps are necessary to permit the building to be moved without damage to their lines and poles and may charge the permittee the cost thereof.
[Amended by Ord. No. 860-98]
Once the move has commenced, the mover shall complete the move within 24 hours, unless a longer time is permitted by the Building Inspector. If a move is interrupted, the building must be located so as to not interfere with pedestrian or vehicular traffic in the public right-of-way.
Every permittee shall, within one day after reaching his destination, report that fact to the Director of Public Works. The Director shall thereupon inspect the streets and highways over which said building has been moved and ascertain their condition. If the moving of said building has caused any damage to the streets or highways, the building mover shall forthwith place them in as good condition as they were before the permit was granted. Upon failure of the building mover to do so within 10 days thereafter to the satisfaction of the Director, the City shall repair the damage done to such streets and highways and hold the sureties of the bond given by the building mover responsible for the payment of the same.
The penalty for violation of any provision of this chapter shall be a penalty as provided in § 1-4 of this Code. A separate offense shall be deemed committed on each day on which a violation of this chapter occurs or continues.
