[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Washington 12-20-1971 as Sec. 12-2 of the Revised General Ordinances. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No person shall move any building or structure through any streets of the township without a permit issued as hereinafter provided.
Any person desiring to move any building or structure shall make application to the Building Subcode Official for a permit. The application shall designate the streets through which the moving will be done, the dimensions of the building, the estimated length of time required for such moving and such other facts as the Building Subcode Official may require. The fee for the permit shall be deposited with the Clerk. The permit may be applied for by the owner of the building or structure to be moved by the mover or contractor.
The applicant shall file with the Clerk a bond in the amount of $5,000 with sureties satisfactory to the Clerk, conditioned for the payment of any damage or injury to the trees, streets or other township property along the designated route and for the replacement of any trees or other township property destroyed by the moving, and further conditioned for the payment of any additional fee due the township for exceeding the time limit fixed for such moving.
The person receiving a permit shall, at his own expense, arrange for the removal of any wires or cables which may interfere with the moving. If any wires or cables which may interfere with the moving pertain to the fire alarm system or police telephone system or any other municipal system of the township, then the person receiving such permit shall, at his own expense, arrange for the removal of wires so as not to interfere in any manner with the continual operation of such systems of the township.
All moving operations as they relate to the problem of traffic shall be done under the supervision of the Chief of Police and at such times as may be fixed by the Chief of Police.
It shall be the duty and obligation of the contractor engaged in the moving operations to furnish and place barricades and detour signs which may be necessary for the proper diversion of motor vehicle traffic.
