[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Health of the Township of Hillside 4-18-1928 as part of the 1928 Sanitary Code; amended in its entirety at time of adoption of Code.(See Ch. 306, General Provisions, Board of Health, Art. I.) Subsequent amendments noted where applicable.]
Every person, firm or corporation that shall sell or offer or expose for sale or be engaged in the business of bottling or otherwise handling milk or milk products in the Township of Hillside shall make application, in writing, to the Department of Health of the Township of Hillside for a license for that purpose; said application shall contain, when required by said Department, a true and complete statement of the localities from which all milk handled by the applicant is produced, a complete list of the persons from whom said milk is purchased or obtained and a complete list of the sources from which the water for washing and cooling purposes is obtained; and if at any time the place at which said milk is produced or the persons for whom the same is purchased or the sources from which such water is obtained shall be changed, said Department of Health shall be immediately notified of such change. At any time within three (3) days after the receipt of a request therefor, any person, persons, firm or corporation engaged in the sale or distribution of milk in the Township of Hillside shall furnish, when requested by the Department of Health, a complete list of all persons to whom the milk is sold or distributed.
Upon the granting of every such license, said Department of Health shall furnish to the licensee two (2) signs for each vehicle or conveyance used by said license for the sale and distribution thereof. Such signs shall be conspicuously placed, one (1) on each side of such vehicle or conveyance, and shall not be removed therefrom until the expiration or revocation of said license. The license issued for the sale of milk in a store or other building or for a bottling plant, depot or station shall be conspicuously displayed in such store, bottling plant, depot or station. Such licenses shall not be sold, assigned or transferred. Every license issued by the Department of Health for the sale or distribution or bottling of milk shall be issued in the name of the owner of the vehicle, store, bottling plant, depot or station in which milk shall be sold or handled.
Every person, firm or corporation obtaining a license for the sale or distribution of milk in the Township of Hillside shall pay to the Department of Health a fee of two dollars ($2.) for each store, wagon, vehicle, station or bottling plant. A license shall entitle the holder thereof to sell only the particular grade of milk for which it is issued. Should the licensee desire to sell other grades of milk, he must obtain a separate permit for each additional grade and pay an additional fee of fifty cents ($0.50) each therefor. Only one (1) such additional fee of fifty cents ($0.50) shall be charged for each additional grade, regardless of the number of wagons, stores, vehicles, stations or bottling plants.
All licenses shall be renewed on or before the first day of July next after the issuing thereof.
No license shall be granted until after a satisfactory inspection has been made. The Department of Health may, however, refuse to issue permits to sell any particular grade of milk unless it is satisfied that the licensee is able to comply with the rules and regulations under which such particular grade of milk must be sold.
Each license shall be granted on the condition that it is subject to suspension or revocation for violation of any of the provisions of this chapter or of any regulation thereunder.
All premises whereon milk is produced or handled for sale or distribution in the Township of Hillside shall be open to the Department of Health, its chemists, bacteriologists or inspectors for inspection at all times, and owners of cows from which such milk is produced shall permit a veterinarian employed by said Department to examine such cows at any time.
Nothing contained in this chapter shall be construed to require a license for the sale of condensed (preserved) milk in hermetically sealed cans or the sale of milk by the glass to be consumed on the premises.
Milking operations are to be carried on in accordance with N.J.S.A. 24:10-57.1 et seq.
Every person, firm or corporation convicted of violating this chapter or any part thereof shall forfeit and pay a fine of not less than five dollars ($5.) nor more than five hundred dollars ($500.).
