When the Borough Council finds and declares that problems of traffic control occur when traffic must be moved through or around street construction, maintenance operations, and utility work, above and below ground which requires blocking the street and obstructing the normal flow of traffic; and that such obstructions are or can become dangerous when not properly controlled. In order to better promote the public health, safety, peace and welfare, it is necessary to establish controls and regulations directed to the safe and expeditious movement of traffic through and around construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work force performing these operations.
The Borough of Little Ferry, in the County of Bergen, State of New Jersey, does hereby adopt the current Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices hereafter known as M.U.T.C.D., except as hereby supplemented and amended, as it controls and regulates whenever construction, maintenance operations or utility work obstructs the normal flow of traffic.

Any person, contractor or utility who fails to comply with this section prior to the start of such work, or whose plans are not approved by the Police Department is in violation of this section.
[New]
The person, contractor, or utility shall provide the Police Department with at least two (2) emergency contact phone numbers to be called in case of emergency problems at the construction or maintenance site prior to the start of any work.

The reasonable fees for such emergency services by the Borough shall be charged to the person, contractor, or utility responsible for such condition.

[1982 Code § 212-11A; New]
