[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Woolwich as Article VII of an ordinance adopted 4-3-1961. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Permits involving the removal of a structure shall specify the time within which the removal shall be made, and if such removal involves the crossing and closing of public streets, roads or highways, the closing of such streets, roads or highways shall not exceed the period of time allowed in the permit, and the street shall only be closed with the written permission of the Chief of the Woolwich Fire Department. The term "removal" as used herein shall mean the change of location without taking down the structures; the term "demolition" shall mean removal by taking down.
The owner contractor must notify all service companies, in writing, when wires or other apparatus may be affected by the moving of the buildings across the streets, roads or highways.
When any building is to be moved over a public thoroughfare, the Township Committee shall have the right, if in their opinion it is necessary, to have the owner or owners or contractor first execute a surety bond indemnifying the township against all damages or expense which might accrue because of the removal of such building.
