[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Commissioners of the City of Bordentown 2-5-1957. Section 220-7 amended at time of adoption of Code; see Ch. 1, General Provisions, Art. II. Other amendments noted where applicable.]
A system is hereby established with respect to the assigning and allotting of official street numbers to properties fronting upon the various streets within the City of Bordentown.
Said street numbers shall be assigned and allotted to the owners of said properties by the City Engineer or such other person as may be designated from time to time by resolution of the Commissioners of the City of Bordentown. Each lot shall be numbered uniformly, with the odd numbers on one side of the street and the even numbers on the other. Said Engineer or such other person as may be designated shall also have the power and the duty of correcting any errors with respect to assignment or allotment of street numbers as and when they are discovered.
It shall be the duty of the owner or occupant of every property, dwelling, house, store or other improvement to place or cause to be placed a proper number which shall be of such size and material and placed in such a substantial manner that the same will be conspicuous and visible from the street, road, avenue, lane or way upon which it fronts or from which access is to be had. The numbers shall be of a height of not less than three inches.
There shall be on file with the Clerk of the City of Bordentown an index list of all numbers assigned to the various dwellings, stores or other improvements. It shall be the duty of the owner or owners, occupant or occupants of any dwelling, store or other improvement to make application to the Clerk of the city to determine the number assigned.
The owner or owners, occupant or occupants of any dwelling, store or other improvement hereinafter erected or completed shall, within 30 days after its erection or completion, apply to the Clerk of the City of Bordentown for an assigned number and shall comply with the terms of this chapter.
In the event that any person shall feel aggrieved by the assignment or allotment, such person shall have the right to appeal to the Commissioners of the City of Bordentown in writing or in person at any of its meetings, whereupon a hearing shall be granted upon said appeal, and the Commissioners shall thereupon proceed to finally determine the matter.
If any owner or occupant of any dwelling, store or other improvement now or hereafter erected in the City of Bordentown shall fail to number or cause to be numbered the dwelling, store or other improvement owned or occupied by him in conformity with the provisions of this chapter, he shall be liable to the payment of a penalty of $25.
