[Ord. #09-07 § 7-1]
Whenever any words and phrases are used in this chapter, the meaning respectively ascribed to them in Subtitle 1 of Title 39 of New Jersey Statutes Annotated shall be deemed to apply to such words and phrases used herein.

Whenever certain hours are named in this chapter, they shall mean either Eastern Standard Time or Eastern Daylight Savings Time as may be in current use in the Borough.
[Ord. #09-07 § 7-3.1]
The provisions of this chapter imposing a time limit on parking shall not relieve any person of the duty to observe other more restrictive provisions prohibiting or limiting the stopping, standing or parking of vehicles as set forth in N.J.S.A. 39:4-138, any other New Jersey Statute or as hereinafter provided.
[Ord. #09-07 § 7-3.2]
a. 
Upon the declaration of an emergency, there shall be no parking upon streets or sections of streets where temporary EMERGENCY-NO PARKING (by Order of Police Department) signs are displayed. The Chief of Police or, in his absence, the ranking police officer is authorized to declare an emergency and to direct the posting of EMERGENCY-NO PARKING signs when weather conditions, accidents, fires, road reconstruction, public celebration, or other circumstances dictate or require the avoidance of hazards or other conditions which interfere with the free flow of traffic.
b. 
Any unoccupied vehicle parked or standing in violation of this subsection shall be deemed a nuisance and a menace to the safe and proper regulation of traffic and any police officer may provide for the removal of such vehicle. The owner shall pay the reasonable costs of removal and storage which may result from such removal before regaining possession of the vehicle.
c. 
The effectiveness of this subsection is contingent upon the signs being erected as required by law.
[Ord. #09-07 § 7-3.3]

[Ord. #09-07 § 7-3.3.1]
No person shall plow, shovel, push, throw or cause to be deposited accumulations of snow or ice which may be deemed to cause or create a traffic safety hazard, or otherwise interfere with the effective removal of snow and ice from the Borough streets by the Department of Public Works, or other entity so employed or empowered by the Borough.
