[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Riverside 3-26-1969 as Ord. No. 1969-2 (Sections 5:2-7 and 5:2-8 of the 1967 Code). Amendments noted where applicable.]

Zoning — See Ch. 255.

Attachment to trees and poles prohibited; exceptions. 

§ 222-2
Violations and penalties. 

The Township Committee finds and declares that the safety and welfare of the people of the township and others using the streets of the township are endangered because of the common practice to affix posters, signs, stickers and literature to trees, poles, trestles, traffic signs and other structures in the township. It shall be unlawful for any person or persons to post, attach or permit or suffer to be posted or attached in any way or manner any bills, posters, signs or stickers, either of paper, wood, tin or any other material, to any telegraph or electric light pole or tree within the township. This section shall not apply to authorized or private bill posters or where permission has been given by a property owner to allow his premises to be used for such purpose, and public notice thereof has been given that the premises may be so used. Nothing herein contained in this section shall be construed to prevent properly authorized persons from making the legal or necessary traffic control marks, lines, words and symbols on the streets and sidewalks of the township.
