  • penalty.


In granting any permit or variance under NRS 497.120 and 497.130, the administrative agency or board of adjustment may, if it deems such an action advisable to carry out the purposes of this chapter and reasonable in the circumstances, so condition the permit or variance as to require the owner of the structure or tree in question to permit the political subdivision to install, operate and maintain thereon at the owner’s expense such markers and lights as may be necessary to indicate to aviators the presence of a hazard to flight.


The political subdivision may, with the permission of the owner and at its own expense, install and operate, upon nonconforming structures existing at the time the particular zoning regulation is adopted or amended, such markers or lights as may be necessary. After initial installation, the political subdivision, upon written notice to the owner, may require the owner to maintain those markers or lights in conformance with the standards of the Federal Aviation Administration.


Any person who fails to install, operate or maintain a marker or light or pay the expenses required in this section is guilty of a misdemeanor.
