The Governing Body hereby finds and declares that problems of traffic control occur and traffic must be moved through or around street construction, maintenance operations, and utility work, above and below ground which requires blocking the roadway 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 safety and expeditious movement of traffic through construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work force performing these operations.
The Township of Maurice River, in the County of Cumberland, 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 of 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 Township Committee is in violation of this section.
[New]
The person, contractor, or utility shall provide the Township Official 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 service by the Township shall be charged to the person, contractor, or utility for such condition.
[New]
There shall be no construction, maintenance operations, or utility work on any roadway in the Township before the hour of 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. This time limit may be adjusted to permit work prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. by the officer in charge of the Township Committee. If it is determined by the officer in charge that the construction or maintenance operations prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. would substantially delay traffic or cause a safety or health hazard, the work shall then be permitted only between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

The Township shall review the application in light of its conformity with applicable provisions of this chapter and shall issue a permit on nondiscrimination terms and conditions, subject to the following requirements:
[1] 
Within 20 days of receiving an application, the Township shall determine and notify the applicant whether the application is complete; or if an application is incomplete, the Township shall specifically identify the missing information and may toll the approval interval in Subsection i1(a)(2) below. The applicant may resubmit the completed application within 20 days without additional charge, and the subsequent review will be limited to the specially identified missing information subsequently completed, except to the extent material changes to the proposed facility have been made by the applicant (other than those requested or required by the Township), in which case a new application and application fee for same must be submitted; and

The Township shall advise the applicant, in writing, of its final decision, and in the final decision document the basis for a denial, including specific code provisions and/or regulations on which the denial was based. A decision to deny an application shall be in writing and supported by substantial evidence contained in a written record, publicly released, and sent to the applicant. The written decision, supported by such substantial evidence, shall constitute final action by the Township. The review period or "shot clock" shall run until the written decision, supported by substantial evidence, is related and sent to the applicant contemporaneously. The applicant may cure the deficiencies identified by the Township and resubmit the application within 30 days of the denial without paying an additional application fee, unless denial was issued due to noncompliance with Design Guidelines or other requirements under this section (in which case a new application fee must be paid). The Township shall approve or deny the revised application within 30 days of receipt of the revised application. The subsequent review by the Township shall be limited to the deficiencies cited in the original denial and any material changes to the application made to cure any identified deficiencies.
(b) 
If the Township fails to act on an application within the review period referenced in Subsection i1(a)(2), the applicant may provide the Township written notice that the time period for acting has lapsed, and the Township then has 20 days after receipt of such notice within which to render its written decision, failing which the application is then deemed approved by passage of time and operation of law and a permit shall be deemed issued for such application. The applicant shall provide notice to the Township at least seven days prior to beginning construction or co-location pursuant to the de facto permit issued under this subsection, and such notice shall not be construed as an additional opportunity for objection by the Township or other entity to the deployment.
(c) 
An applicant seeking to construct, modify or replace a network of communications facilities may, at the applicant's discretion and subject to the Township's application requirements and process, file a consolidated application and receive a single permit for multiple communications facilities, or multiple permit(s) for any and all sites in a consolidated application that it does not otherwise deny, subject to the requirements of this section.

[1]
Editor's Note: See Ch. 35.
5. 
Undergrounding provisions.
(a) 
The Township shall administer undergrounding provisions in a nondiscriminatory manner. It shall be the objective of the Township and all public right-of-way occupants to minimize disruption or discontinuance of service of all kinds to consumers, through mutual obligation to coordinate and timely complete such projects.
(b) 
An occupant shall comply with nondiscriminatory Township underground requirements that: (1) are in place and published prior to the date of initial filing of the application; and (2) prohibit electric, telecommunications and cable providers from installing aboveground horizontal cables, poles, or equivalent vertical structures in the public ROW; and the Township may require the removal of overhead cable and subsequently unused poles. In areas where existing aerial utilities are being moved underground, wireless providers shall retain the right to remain in place, under their existing authorization, by buying out the ownership of the pole(s), subject to the concurrence of the pole owner and consent of the Township (which consent may not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed), or, alternatively, the wireless provider may reasonably replace the existing pole(s) or vertical structure locations for antennas and accessory equipment, as a permitted use within 50 feet of the prior location, unless a minimally greater distance is necessary for compelling public welfare.
(c) 
In neighborhoods or areas with existing underground utilities that do not have small wireless facilities deployed as permitted use, a new entrant wireless provider applying after utilities have been placed underground shall first seek existing vertical structure locations, if technically feasible for the wireless service to be deployed. To the degree such vertical structures are not available, and upon receiving an approved permit, the applicant shall be entitled to place poles or vertical structures as necessary to provide the wireless service using vertical structures commensurate with other vertical structures in the neighboring underground utility area.
(d) 
In neighborhoods or areas with existing underground utilities that do have small wireless facilities deployed as a permitted use, a new entrant wireless provider applying after utilities have been placed underground shall first seek existing vertical structure locations, if technically feasible for the wireless service to be deployed. To the degree such vertical structures are not available, and upon receiving an approved permit, the applicant shall be entitled to place poles or vertical structures as necessary to provide the wireless service using vertical structures commensurate with other vertical structures of wireless providers in the neighboring underground utility area.
(e) 
In the neighborhoods with underground utilities, whether being converted from overhead utilities or initially underground, micro-wireless devices, typically strand-mounted, shall be treated like other small wireless facilities in the public ROW, requiring permitted use status, and subject to nonrecurring and recurring fees and rates.
6. 
Effect of permit.
(a) 
Authority granted; no property right or other interest created. A permit from the Township authorizes an applicant to undertake only certain activities in accordance wit this chapter and does not create a property right or grant authority to the applicant to impinge upon the rights of others who may already have an interest in the public ROW.
(b) 
Duration. Any permit for construction issued under this section shall be valid for a period of six months after issuance, provided that the six-month period shall be extended for up to an additional six months upon written request of the applicant made prior to the end of the initial six-month period if the failure to complete construction is delayed as a result of circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the applicant.
7. 
Removal, relocation or modification of a communications facility in the right-of-way.
(a) 
Notice. Within 90 days following written notice from the Township, a provider shall, at its own expense, protect, support, temporarily or permanently disconnect,, remove, relocate, change or alter the position of any communications facility within the public right-of-way whenever the Township has determined that such removal, relocation, change or alteration is reasonably necessary for the construction, repair, maintenance or installation of any Township improvement in or upon, or the operations of the Township in or upon, the public right-of-way. The Township shall apply the same standards to all utilities in the public right-of-way.
(b) 
Emergency removal or relocation of facilities. The Township retains the right and privilege to cut power to or move any communications facility located within the public right-of-way of the Township, as the Township may determine to be necessary, appropriate or useful in response to any public welfare emergency or safety emergency. If circumstances permit, the Township shall notify the provider and provide the provider an opportunity to move its own facilities prior to cutting power to or removing the communications facility and in all cases shall notify the provider after cutting power to or removing the communications facility as promptly as reasonably possible.
(c) 
Abandonment of facilities. A provider is required to notify the Township of abandonment of any communications facility at the time the decision to abandon is made; however, in no case shall such notification be made later than 30 days prior to abandonment. Following receipt of such notice, the Township shall direct the provider to remove all or any portion of the communications facility if the Township determines that such removal will be in the best interest of the public safety and public welfare. If the provider fails to remove the abandoned facility within 60 days after such notice, the Township may undertake to do so and recover the actual and reasonable expenses of doing so from the provider, its successors and/or assigns.
(d) 
Structural reconditioning, repair, and replacement. From time to time, the pole owners may paint, recondition, or otherwise improve or repair the owner's poles in a substantial way ("reconditioning work"). The provider shall reasonably cooperate with the owner to carry out reconditioning work activities in a manner that minimizes interference with the provider's approved use of the facility.
j. 
Miscellaneous provisions.
1. 
Any approval received pursuant to this chapter does not relieve the applicant from receiving consent from the owner of the land above which an applicant's facility may be located as may be required under New Jersey law or the owner of any existing pole on which the facility may be mounted.
2. 
The applicant must, in addition to receiving a right-of-way permit, also receive all necessary road opening permits, construction permits, and any other requirement set forth in the Revised Ordinances of the Township of Maurice River or state statutes.
3. 
The Township's consent for use of county roads, as required pursuant to N.J.S.A. 27:16-6, shall take the form of a right-of-way permit subject to the standards and application process set forth in this chapter. No such applicant shall be required to enter into a right-of-way agreement with the Township.
