[HISTORY: Adopted by the Mayor and Council of the Borough of Tuckerton 4-1-1974 by Ord. No. 6-1974. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The parents or guardian of any minor under the age of 18 years and living with said parents or guardian shall be responsible for the payment for willful or malicious damage to property caused by any such minor in the Borough of Tuckerton.
The finding by the Tuckerton Municipal Court that said damage to property was willfully or maliciously caused by said minor shall be sufficient to determine the liability upon such parent or guardian, and the court may then fix the amount and method of payment of compensation to be paid by such parent or guardian.
Failure to make such payment or payments as fixed by the Municipal Court shall be deemed to be a violation of this chapter and, upon conviction thereof, shall be punishable by a fine not to exceed $200 or by imprisonment in the county jail for a period not to exceed 90 days, or both.
