[New]
The Governing Body 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 or below the 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 forces performing these operations.
The Borough of Fair Haven; in the County of Monmouth, State of New Jersey, does hereby adopt the current Manual on Uniform Control Devices for Streets and Highways hereafter known as the 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 that fails to comply with the provisions of the M.U.T.C.D. while performing such work is in violation of this section.
[New]
It shall be the responsibility of the person, contractor, or in the case of a public utility as required under the public utility agreement, N.J.A.C. 16:25-9.2, wishing to conduct work on, under or above the street to contact the police department of the Borough of Fair Haven, in order to arrange a preconstruction meeting and submit plans for the safe movement of traffic during such period of construction or work. 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 of the Borough of Fair Haven is in violation of this section.
[New]
The person, contractor or utility shall provide at least two emergency contact telephone numbers to be called in case of emergency problems at the construction or maintenance site prior to the start of any work. If, for any reason, emergency contact must be made, or if the emergency contact person does not respond to a call from the Police Department to correct such hazardous condition, the Borough may respond to correct the hazardous condition(s). The reasonable fees for such emergency services by the Borough shall be charged to the person, contractor, or utility responsible for the condition.
[New]
There shall be no construction, maintenance, operations, or utility work on any roadway in the Borough before the hour of 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. The officer in charge of the Borough Police Department may adjust this time limit to permit work prior to 9:00 a.m. or after 4:00 p.m. If the officer in charge determines 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. or after 4:00 p.m.
[New]
Road closing and/or traffic detours shall not be permitted unless approved by the Borough Police Department.
[New]
Traffic directors shall be posted at all construction or maintenance sites when determined by the Borough Police Department that same is necessary to provide for the safe and expeditious movement of traffic.
[New]
The Borough Police Department shall have the authority to stop work, including the removal of equipment and vehicles, stored material within the street right-of-way, back filling of open excavations and/or related work, in order to abate any nuisance and/or safety hazard or for any violation of this section.
[New]
It is to be expressly understood that no materials, vehicles or equipment are to be placed in the roadway or sidewalk or until all construction, signs, light devices and pavement markings are installed.
[New]
Any person, contractor or utility who commits a violation of this section shall, upon conviction thereof for a first offense, pay a fine of not less than $100 nor more than $500 and/or be imprisoned in the county jail for a term not exceeding 90 days. For a second offense, upon conviction thereof, pay a fine of not less than $250 and/or be imprisoned in the County jail for a term not exceeding 90 days.

[2002 Code § 10.08.010; Ord. No. 2015-15; Ord. No. 2016-07]
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 or 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. No. 2015-15; Ord. No. 2016-07]

Notification that EMERGENCY NO PARKING signs are being or will be posted shall be given to the operator or owner of any vehicle, which has been parked prior to the posting of the signs.
b. 
The effectiveness of this subsection is contingent upon the signs being erected as required by law.

Any unoccupied vehicle parked or standing in violation 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 the removal and storage, which may result from such removal before regaining possession of the vehicle.
