Junk Law's the Junk Law. The law is fairly long so I'm going to post Section 1 and 2 today, and the other sections as the days go by.

Section 1. TITLE
This Law shall be known and cited as the "Abandoned, Junk and Inoperative Vehicle Local Law 1 of 1993 of the Town of Lindley."
A. It is the purpose of this Local Law to promote the public health, safety and general welfare to provide rules and regulations in regard to storing, leaving or depositing abandoned, junked or inoperative motor vehicles on real property, or private premises in the Town Of Lindley.
B. The unrestrained accumulation of inoperable motor vehicles and/or junk as defined in this Law, is a hazard to such health, safety and welfare of the citizens of the Town, necessitating the regulation, restraint and elimination thereof. This Law is enacted in recognition of the fact that even a single inoperable, unregistered or junk vehicle, as defined in Section 3, abandoned or stored on private or public property:
  1. Can constitute both a public and private nuisance.
  2. Is a source of potential injury to children and others.
  3. If often replete with broken glass, sharp torn metal edges and hurtful acids in batteries and environmental waste.
  4. Adversely affects the aesthetic qualities of the Town and is generally unsightly.
  5. Tends to depreciate not only the property on which it is located but also the property of other persons in the neighborhood and the Town generally.
  6. Adversely affects the welfare of the Town as a whole.
  7. Tends to result in the uncontrolled collection of debris, brush, weeds and tall grass.
  8. Tends to be a breeding ground for insects, rodents, and similar harmful creatures.
  9. Poses a potential obstacle to emergency personnel and equipment.

Ten more sections to go....some of them are real short.
