[HISTORY: Adopted by the Township Committee of the Township of Boonton 11-16-1992 as Ord. No. 471. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Pursuant to the authority conferred by N.J.S.A. 40:67-1(j), a system of numbering all buildings and lots of land in the Township is hereby adopted.
All dwelling houses, stores or other buildings erected within the Township shall be numbered in conformity with the street numbers on the Tax and Assessment Maps of the Township filed in the office of the Tax Assessor of the Township.
The number so assigned to each building should be displayed by the owner or occupant on the front of the building or in the front yard of the lot on which the same stands, in numerals of such size and so located as to be clearly visible to persons passing by the premises on the abutting street.
The owner of any dwelling house, store or other building incorrectly or improperly numbered shall be notified, in writing, by the Tax Assessor or such other person so designated by the Township Committee to change or replace such incorrect or improper number within 10 days after date of such notice.
Upon application by the owner of any property in the Township to the Tax Assessor, the Tax Assessor, acting in conjunction with the 911 Coordinator, shall furnish such owner with the correct number of such property.
Upon any subdivision of land in the Township resulting in a lot or lots other than those numbered on the Tax and Assessment Maps, the Tax Assessor shall, within 30 days after final approval thereof, assign a number to each lot resulting from said subdivision or resubdivision which shall be in proper numerical sequence in relation to the numbers assigned to other lots fronting on the same street; and he shall record the same upon said map and notify the owner of said property of the numbers so assigned.
