[Adopted by Ord. No. 1107 (§ 2-12A of the 1987 Code)]
Effective enforcement of state and local parking regulations enhances the efficient flow of traffic throughout the Borough thereby contributing to the health, safety and well-being of the inhabitants of the Borough.
Appointment of parking enforcement officers with power to issue summons for violations of Title 39 of the New Jersey Statutes and municipal ordinances will enable the Borough to enforce such laws in a cost-effective manner.
It is, therefore, in the public interest that an ordinance authorizing employment of parking enforcement officers be enacted by the Borough Council.
The Borough Council may, consistent with the requirements of state law, appoint persons to perform the duties and responsibilities authorized by P.L. 1987, c. 260. Such persons shall be strictly prohibited from carrying or using firearms while on duty.
Editor's Note: See N.J.S.A. 40A:9-154.7.
Parking enforcement officers authorized by this article shall be under the supervision of the Chief of Police and shall have the power to issue parking tickets for parking offenses as defined in N.J.S.A. 39:4-139.3(c) and to cause any vehicle parked, stored or abandoned in violation of a statute, resolution, ordinance or regulation to be towed away from the scene of the violation.
Parking enforcement officers receive such compensation as shall be authorized in the appropriate resolution of the Borough Council.
