68-2205. Certificate of compliance; requirements; failure to make an original or renewal application; injunction. No person shall establish, operate, or maintain a junkyard, any portion of which is within 1,000 feet of the nearest edge of the right-of-way of any street or highway on the interstate or the primary systems, or any other portion of which is within 1,000 feet of the nearest edge of the right-of-way of any other state, county, township highway, road or city street, without obtaining a certificate of compliance from the secretary of transportation, which certificates shall be issued only for junkyards not prohibited by K.S.A. 68-2204, and amendments thereto. The secretary of transportation shall have the sole authority to issue certificates of compliance for the establishment, maintenance and operation of junkyards within the limits defined herein, except that an initial application for a certificate of compliance must show that such junkyards were approved by a local governing body if such approval is required by the local governing body. The secretary of transportation shall charge an annual fee of $50 payable on or before January 1. Anyone establishing a junkyard after July 1 of any year shall pay a fee of $25 for the remaining portion of the year. No city or county governing body shall be required to pay any fees provided for herein. All licenses issued under this section shall expire on January 1 following the date of issue. A certificate of compliance may be renewed from year to year upon paying to the secretary of transportation the sum of $50 in advance for such renewal.
Any person who shall willfully or intentionally refuse to make an original application or renewal application, or to pay the annual certificate of compliance fee, as prescribed in this act, shall be deemed delinquent on and after February 16 of any year, or in cases where business is established after the first of the year such person shall be deemed delinquent on and after 45 days after establishment of the business and shall be assessed a penalty fee by the secretary of transportation of $1 per day for each day such person continues to do business until the application is made and the fees have been paid. After such time it shall be unlawful for the owner, or any person, to operate the junkyard. Proceeds from such fees shall be deposited with the state treasurer in the state highway fund and be subject to disbursement as provided by law to defray the expenses of administering the provisions of this act. Whenever any person required to be certified under this act fails to make application with the secretary of transportation, or to pay the certificate of compliance fee when due, or continues to do business when the secretary of transportation has denied, suspended or revoked such application or certificate of compliance, the secretary of transportation may file an action to enjoin such person from operating in violation of this act.
