   INOPERABLE MOTOR VEHICLE: Any motor vehicle from which the engine, wheels or other parts have been removed, or on which the engine, wheels or other parts have been altered, damaged or otherwise so treated that the vehicle is incapable of being driven under its own motor power. Inoperable motor vehicle shall not include a motor vehicle which has been rendered temporarily incapable of being driven under its own power in order to perform ordinary service or repair operations nor to any motor vehicle that is kept within a building when not in use, to historic vehicles over twenty five (25) years of age, nor to a motor vehicle on the premises of a place of business engaged in repairing, wrecking, or junking of vehicles.
   PROPERTY: Any real property within the Village which is not a "street" as defined in this Section.
   STREET: The entire width between the boundary lines of every street, alley, highway, or other public way when any part thereof is open to the use of public for purposes of vehicular travel.
   VEHICLE: A machine propelled by power other than human power designed to travel along the ground by use of wheels, treads, runners, or slides, and to transport persons or property or pull machinery, including, without limitation, any automobile, truck, trailer, motorcycle, tractor, buggy, or wagon.
   B.   Inoperable Or Abandoned Vehicle On Street: No person shall leave any inoperable vehicle or abandoned vehicle on any street in the Village. (Ord. 90-10-17)
   C.   Nuisance Declared: An inoperable vehicle, whether on public or private property, is hereby declared to be a nuisance. All persons are required to dispose of any inoperable vehicles under their control within seven (7) days after written notice received from the Village Board, the Village Manager, or the Chief of Police, or from any member of the Police Department designated by the Chief. (Ord. 90-10-17; amd. 2000 Code)
   D.   Removing And Impounding Vehicles:
      (1)   Removal; Impoundment: The Police Department is authorized to remove or have removed any vehicles left at any place within the Village which reasonably appears to be lost, stolen, or unclaimed, or which is an inoperable vehicle. Such vehicle shall be impounded until lawfully claimed or disposed of in accordance with Illinois statutes.
      (2)   Traffic Hazard, Immediate Removal: When an abandoned, unattended, damaged, or inoperable vehicle creates a traffic hazard because of its position in relation to a street or because of its physical appearance causes an impedance of traffic, its immediate removal from the street by a towing service may be authorized by order of the Chief of Police.
      (3)   Towing Costs: When a vehicle is removed from either public or private property as authorized by an order of the Chief of Police, the owner of the vehicle shall be responsible for all towing costs.

   F.   Notice And Search For Owner: Whenever a vehicle is towed away or otherwise disposed of by police order under any provision of this Section, the Police Department shall promptly notify the vehicle owner of the action taken. When the Police Department does not know the identity of the registered owner of a towed vehicle, or other legally entitled person, they shall cause the vehicle registration records of the State to be searched to facilitate giving such notice.
   G.   Reclaiming Vehicles: Any time before a vehicle is sold at public sale or disposed of as provided herein, the owner or other person legally entitled to its possession may reclaim the vehicle. No vehicle shall be released to the owner or other person under this subsection until all towing and storage charges have been paid.
   H.   Sale Of Vehicle: Whenever an inoperable, abandoned, lost, stolen or unclaimed motor vehicle remains unclaimed by the registered owner or other person legally untitled to its possession for a period of thirty (30) days, the vehicle may be sold in accordance with the laws of the State.
