                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: June 28, 2013

   By the Ronald D Ramage, Kansas City Office, South Central Region,
   Enforcement Bureau:

    1. This is a Notice of Violation (Notice) issued pursuant to Section 1.89
       of the Commission's rules (Rules)^ to Village of Campbell, owner of
       antenna structure number 1222714 in Campbell, Nebraska. Pursuant to
       Section 1.89(a) of the Rules, issuance of this Notice does not
       preclude the Enforcement Bureau from further action if warranted,
       including issuing a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture for
       the violation(s) noted herein.^

    2. On June 17, 2013, an agent of the Enforcement Bureau's Kansas City
       Office inspected antenna structure number 1222714 located at 750 feet
       East of Broad Street and Highway 4, Campbell, NE, and observed the
       following violation(s):

     a. 47 C.F.R. S 17.50: "Antenna structures requiring painting under this
        part shall be cleaned or repainted as often as necessary to maintain
        good visibility." At the time of inspection, the paint on this
        structure was faded and bare metal could be seen in several places.
        Thus, its visibility to aircraft was reduced.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S 17.4(g): " ... the Antenna Structure Registration Number
        must be displayed in a conspicuous place so that it is readily
        visible near the base of the antenna structure. Materials used to
        display the Antenna Structure Registration Number must be
        weather-resistant and of sufficient size to be easily seen at the
        base of the antenna structure." At the time of inspection, the ASR
        number was not observed at the antenna site.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as
       amended,^ and Section 1.89 of the Rules, we seek additional
       information concerning the violations and any remedial actions taken.
       Therefore, Village of Campbell must submit a written statement
       concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of release of this
       Notice. The response (i) must fully explain each violation, including
       all relevant surrounding facts and circumstances, (ii) must contain a
       statement of the specific action(s) taken to correct each violation
       and preclude recurrence, and (iii) must include a time line for
       completion of any pending corrective action(s). The response must be
       complete in itself and must not be abbreviated by reference to other
       communications or answers to other notices.^

    4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Rules, we direct Village of
       Campbell to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit or
       declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of Village of Campbell with personal knowledge of

       verifying the truth and accuracy of the information therein,^ and
       confirming that all of the information requested by this Notice which
       is in the Village's possession, custody, control, or knowledge has
       been produced. To knowingly and willfully make any false statement or
       conceal any material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by
       fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.^
