[HISTORY: Adopted by the City Council of the City of Vineland as indicated in article histories. Amendments noted where applicable.]
[Adopted 8-14-2007 by Ord. No. 2007-64]
Pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:47-1.1, the City Council is the issuing authority for licenses to perform certain games of chance entitled raffle and bingo licenses;
In as much as formal action of the City Council regularly meets biweekly, and therefore requests for raffle and bingo licenses which are typically time-sensitive may not be considered and granted prior to the date set for the event;
N.J.A.C. 13:47-1.1 authorizes City Council to designate another individual as the issuing authority to approve and grant raffle and bingo licenses; and
City Council finds it in the best interest of the City to allow an individual to issue said licenses, thereby avoiding the necessity of special sessions of City Council to consider such matters.
Games of chance may be conducted in the City of Vineland on the first day of the week commonly known and designated as "Sunday," in accordance with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 5:8-31 and N.J.S.A. 5:8-58, as may be permitted by N.J.S.A. 5:8-24 et seq. and N.J.S.A. 5:8-50 et seq., provided that the applicant for the license to conduct such game otherwise qualifies under the provisions of the aforementioned statutes of the State of New Jersey and the rules and regulations of the Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission and, specifically, provided that the organization conducting the games is a charitable, religious or other organization specifically qualifying under the provisions of the aforementioned statutes.
