Bills of Assurance
Generally, all restrictions as set forth in the Bills of assurance shall be enforceable by this ordinance.
According to our Bills of Assurance, under General Provisions, nothing shall be allowable on premises in any zone established which would in any way be offensive or obnoxious by reason of control, design, of the emission of odors, liquids, gases, dust, smoke, vibration, or noise. Nor shall anything be placed, constructed or maintained that would in any way constitute and construct an eyesore or nuisance to adjacent property owners, residents, or to the community.
We define eye sore or nuisance as, but not limited to:
Burnt out houses
Abandoned motor vehicles- for the purpose of this ordinance, abandoned motor vehicle is defined as one that is in a state of disrepair and incapable of being moved under its own power or one that does not have current, valid license plates.
Discarded household furniture
Discarded household appliances
Discarded glass, metal, plastic, paper, building rubbish, trash or similar items not in trash cans
Discarded tires, car parts
It is the duty and responsibility of every owner, occupant, or owner's authorized agent to keep the premises of such residential property clean and to remove from the premises all such abandoned items as listed above.
Any owner, occupant, or owner's authorized agent that fails to remove abandoned items as listed above or does not comply with the bill of assurance within 20 days after written notice from the Ozark Acres S.I.D., shall be in violation of this ordinance.
Any violation of this ordinance shall be deemed a misdemeanor and upon conviction shall be punishable by a fine set by the court. After conviction there will be a 30-day time limit to correct the problem.
The 2nd offence shall be punishable by a fine set by the court. Again, after conviction there will be a 30-day time limit to correct the problem. The court will deal with third offence. (Filed August 12, 2003)
