(a) It shall be unlawful for any person to engage in the business of fuel oil dealer without first having obtained a hazardous materials license, as specified in Section 4-6-210.
This section shall not be construed to include or apply to dealers in fuel oil who are licensed at the same place, location or premises under the provisions of this Code licensing “filling stations”, in such a way as to require an additional license fee from persons so licensed who pay an annual license fee that is equal to or greater than the annual license fee required of a fuel oil dealer hereunder who uses or proposes to use storage facilities in connection with his business.
(b) The fire commissioner shall investigate such application and the matters and things therein stated.
(c) All places of business of fuel oil dealers shall be kept in a clean condition, free from accumulations of rags, wastepaper and other combustible waste materials. Smoking shall be prohibited thereon. Adequate toilet facilities shall be provided. All such premises and all vehicles used in connection with the business of fuel oil dealers shall be conducted and operated in accordance with Chapter 15-26 and shall be inspected by the Fire Commissioner at least once every year.
It shall be unlawful for any fuel oil dealer to refill any fuel oil storage container or tank used in connection with an oil-burning heater, boiler or furnace, unless such storage container or tank is equipped with an automatic or return vent pipe, or unless the fill pipe of such storage container or tank is equipped with a screw or automatic cap. It shall be the duty of every such dealer after filling or refilling any fuel oil storage container or tank to replace the screw cap on such fill pipe, or if equipped with an automatic cap, to see to it that said fill cap pipe is properly closed.
