ORDINANCE NO.  1765

AN ORDINANCE TO ESTABLISH STRUCTURAL NUMBERING IN ST. MARY PARISH AND PROVIDING PENALTIES FOR THE  VIOLATION THEREOF.

 

SECTION 1:  Structural numbering is hereby established in St. Mary Parish. It is made the duty of each and every property owner to number or have numbered with Arabic numbers not less than four inches in height, every residential (single family, multi-family, trailer, apartment and apartment complex), commercial or industrial building.  The St. Mary Parish E911 Communications District will assign the number.

 

SECTION 2:  All numbers shall be composed of individual digits a minimum of four inches in height and shall be posted on the building in such a manner as to be read from the street, avenue or public way.  If the building is not visible from the roadway, the mail box or other means of visible posting must be numbered with reflective numbers a minimum of two inches in height on both sides of the posting or mailbox.  With respect to apartments, all apartment buildings must have approved numbers, plus numbers or letters on each individual door or within four inches of the door on the wall.  On new structures or buildings, numbers shall be posted prior to installation of telephone service.  The above and foregoing notwithstanding, nothing in this article shall permit the installation of signs on a public right of way. 

 

SECTION 3: Violation of this article shall be a misdemeanor and shall be punished as follows:

 For a first offense, a fine of not more than $50.00.

For a second offense, a fine of not more than $100.00.

For a third or subsequent offense, a fine of not more than $200.00.

 Additionally, a person convicted of a violation of this ordinance shall be assessed the cost of prosecution.  However, upon presentation to the St. Mary Parish E911 Communication District showing pictorial proof of compliance within thirty (30) days of issuance of a summons that the addressing posting requirements have been complied with, the St. Mary Parish E911 Communications District shall request that the prosecution of the person issued the summons be dismissed. 

 

 SECTION 4: If any section, part, paragraph, sentence or clause of this ordinance should be declared invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or defect shall not affect the remaining sections, paragraphs, parts, sentences or clause hereof, and, to this end, the several provisions hereof are declared to be servable.

  

This ordinance shall become effective and be in full force upon publication in the official journal of the Parish.
