Vehicles, Junk

'Junk' vehicles are formally known as 'inoperable motor vehicles,' which means any motor vehicle, trailer, or semitrailer that is not in operating condition or on which there are displayed neither valid license plates nor a valid inspection decal. It is unlawful to have any inoperable vehicle in any zoning district unless it is in an enclosed structure or otherwise screened from view from anywhere outside of the property. Licensed and legal junkyard/auto graveyard dealers are exempt.

More than 5 inoperable vehicles are considered an Automobile Graveyard. You must have a license, issued by the Commissioner of Revenue, to operate or maintain an automobile graveyard or junkyard. It is only allowed in Industrial and Agricultural zoning districts and a Special Use Permit is also required. Automobile graveyards or junkyards should be screened by natural objects, walls, or fences.
