Every swimming pool in the village shall be completely surrounded by a fence or wall not less than six feet in height, which shall be constructed as to not have openings, holes, or gaps larger than four inches in any dimension, except for doors and gates; and if a picket fence is erected and maintained, the horizontal dimension shall not exceed four inches. A dwelling house or accessory building may be used as part of the enclosure. All gates or doors opening through the enclosure shall be equipped with a self-closing and self-latching devise for keeping the gate or door securely closed at all times when not in actual use, except that the door or any dwelling which forms part of the enclosure need not be so equipped. This requirement shall be applicable to all new swimming pools which have a depth of 18 inches or more of water at any point and shall apply to all existing pools which have a depth of 18 inches or more of water at any point.
