  • No person shall act as a motor vehicle salvage dealer or shall operate or maintain a motor vehicle salvage lot within the city limits of Cincinnati without first obtaining a license as a motor vehicle salvage dealer from the city treasurer for each motor vehicle salvage lot operated by such person. Any motor vehicle salvage lot located only partially within the city limits of Cincinnati shall also be licensed pursuant to this section.

    Before an original license is issued under this chapter, the person seeking the license shall make application therefor with the city treasurer, and shall attach to the application an accurate plot plan of the area, showing the actual shape and dimensions of the lot or area to be used, and shall provide any other additional information that may be requested by the city treasurer, city engineer or director of buildings and inspections in determining whether the applicant should be granted the requested license. An application shall be approved by the city engineer and the director of buildings and inspections prior to being granted and shall show that the applicant has complied with all city ordinances and rules regarding zoning, drains, signs, driveways, fencing and barrier curbs. Approval by the city engineer and the director of buildings and inspections will not be necessary for the renewal of any license issued under this chapter. However, the city treasurer shall be empowered to suspend or revoke any existing license when it is shown that the licensee has not complied will all city ordinances and rules regarding zoning, drains, signs, driveways, fencing and barrier curbs. Under no circumstances shall any license to operate a motor vehicle salvage lot be issued or renewed until the fencing requirements set forth in Section 846-7 of this chapter have been met and the fence has, after completion, received final approval by the director of buildings and inspections.

    Anyone who operates a junk yard on the same premises and who has obtained a license therefor shall not be required to also obtain a license under this chapter. No license to operate a motor vehicle salvage lot shall be renewed if, in the opinion of the director of buildings and inspection, the premises is not adequately fenced pursuant to Section 846-7 of this chapter. No person who has been convicted of illegally possessing or purchasing any motor vehicle or motor vehicle parts or accessories within the past 10 years preceding the date of the application for a license shall be granted a license as a motor vehicle salvage dealer. No partnership in which any of the partners, or no corporation in which any of the principal officers, have been so convicted within the past 10 years preceding the date of application for a license shall be issued such a license.
