  No automobile trailer park shall be located in a business zone or in a residential zone; except that if an application has been made to the Board of Trustees upon forms provided for by the Village Clerk and the application is accompanied by the written consent to such location from at least two-thirds (2/3) of the resident owners and two-thirds (2/3) of the total owners of all property within three hundred (300) feet of such location and after a public hearing held by the Board of Trustees on such application after public notice thereof published in the official village paper once a week for two (2) consecutive weeks prior thereto, the Board of Trustees may grant a permit for such a location, and provided further that this section shall not be construed as requiring such Board of Trustees to grant any such permit but that the granting thereof shall rest in the discretion of the Board of Trustees.

~ 269-4. Use of trailer as habitation outside trailer park.

  No person shall use an automobile trailer or house car as a habitation, except in a licensed park, without first having acquired a license therefor from the Board of Trustees, which can be granted only under the same provisions as those stated in ~ 269-3 above.

The licensee of the trailer park shall collect this charge for the Village of Fredonia and pay it over to the Receiver of Taxes in accordance with such regulations as the Board of Trustees may establish governing such payments.
