[Adopted by Ord. No. 14-1984; amended by Ord. No. 2002-08 (Sec. 2-9.1 of the 1985 Revised General Ordinances)]
The laws of the State of New Jersey require each municipality to provide certain public health activities and services; and such activities and services can, in most instances, be best provided on a regional basis. The Hunterdon County Health Department is the most appropriate regional authority for such purpose; and such regional services and activities have heretofore been provided without direct cost to this Township, but now the County Health Department will make a direct charge for its services.
The following fees and charges are herewith established:
For the filing of an application and plans to locate and construct an individual sewage disposal system, plan review, site inspection, issuance of permit and installation inspections: $200.
For the filing of an application and plans for a permit to alter an existing individual sewage disposal system and issue said permit: $100.
For filing an application for repair: $50.
Application renewal fee: $50.
The fees for a temporary or permanent food handler's license and for county inspections are set forth in Chapter 205, Article II, Fee Schedule.
[Amended 4-18-2007 by Ord. No. 2007-7]
All fees shall be payable directly to the Hunterdon County Board of Health Department and shall be paid at the time of inspection.
The Hunterdon County Health Director is hereby designated as the Health Officer of the Township of Lebanon.
[Adopted 2-2-2005 by Ord. No. 2005-03[1]]
Editor's Note: This ordinance specifically repealed all previous ordinances establishing a schedule of fees, and it stated that it shall serve as the sole source for establishing all copies, permits, licenses, photographs and search fees.
[Amended 9-2-2020 by Ord. No. 2020-08]
A request for records from the Township of Lebanon shall incur a charge equal to the actual cost of duplication by the Township. Said costs shall be set forth by a schedule prepared by the Municipal Clerk and approved by the Township Committee and updated as needed to reflect current costs.
The Township of Lebanon may impose a special service charge to cover the cost of labor where complying with the request for documents involves the use of technology. For a request for records in a medium not routinely used by the Township of Lebanon and requiring a substantial amount of manipulation and/or programming of information technology, the Township of Lebanon may charge, in addition to the cost of duplication, a special reasonable charge related to its labor cost of making the copy.
