[Ord. No. 861 § BH-10.1]
Emergency inspections may be authorized without warrant if the Registered Environmental Health Specialist has reason to believe that a condition exists which poses an immediate threat to life, health or safety. Such procedure shall only take place where the time taken to apply for and secure the issuance of a warrant would render ineffective the immediate action necessary to abate the condition.
Emergency inspections may also be authorized by the Governor in times of air pollution emergencies in accordance with N.J.S.A. 26:2C-26 et seq.
[Ord. No. 861 § BH-10.2]
Where the Registered Environmental Health Specialist or his or her agent is refused entry or access or is otherwise impeded or prevented by the owner, occupant or operator from conducting an inspection of the premises, such person shall be in violation of this chapter and shall be subject to penalties hereunder.
[Ord. No. 861 § BH-10.3]
The Registered Environmental Health Specialist may, upon affidavit, apply to the Judge of the Municipal Court of the Borough for a search warrant setting forth factually the actual conditions and circumstances that indicate what violations of this chapter may exist on the premises. If the Judge of the Municipal Court is satisfied as to the matter set forth in the affidavit, the Judge shall authorize the issuance of a search warrant permitting access to and inspection of that part of the premises on which the nuisance or violation may exist.
