[HISTORY: Adopted by the Borough Council of the Borough of Bay Head 12-18-1984 as § 9-4 of the 1984 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
No building or other structure shall be removed from one location to another except in accordance with a written permit first and obtained pursuant to this chapter.
No permit shall be issued except on written application specifying the sites from and to which the building is to be moved and the route. If the building is to be moved wholly over private lands, such permit may be issued by the Construction Official.
If the moving will require the use of any part of any public street, highway or land, the permit may be issued only by way of written resolution duly adopted by the Mayor and Council. Such resolution shall contain such conditions as the Mayor and Council may deem proper to protect borough property and the public, including time limits and indemnity by way of bond or other security, and no such resolution shall be effective until or unless the security specified thereby has been deposited with and approved by the Municipal Clerk, by his/her endorsement thereon to that effect.
No permit whether issued by the Construction Official or by the Mayor and Council shall be construed to authorize any invasion of private property, nor to make the borough responsible in any manner for any damage whatsoever, but the owner of the building and his contractor or other persons engaged in the work shall be liable for any and all damages occasioned to borough property, as well as to private property or persons. A fee shall be charged for each moving permit, which shall be collected by the Construction Official when the permit is issued by him and by the Municipal Clerk when the permit is issued by resolution as aforesaid.
In addition to the bond or other security required by the provisions of this section, fees, in amounts as set forth in the fee schedule on file at the office of the Municipal Clerk, in the case of a commercial or multifamily dwelling or structure and in the case of a residential dwelling or accessory structure, shall be tendered with the application for the removal permit.
Unless otherwise specified herein, for a violation of any provision of this chapter, the maximum penalty, upon conviction thereof, shall be a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars ($1,000.) or imprisonment for up to ninety (90) days or a period of community service not exceeding ninety (90) days, or any combination thereof. Except as otherwise provided, each and every day in which a violation of any provision of this chapter exists shall constitute a separate violation.
All fines and penalties under this chapter may be paid directly to the Municipal Court Administrator, unless otherwise indicated by the officer issuing the summons.
