Each official position created in Subsection A hereof shall be filled by a person qualified for such position pursuant to P.L. 1975, c. 217, as amended, and N.J.A.C. 5:23, provided that in lieu of any particular subcode official, an on-site inspection agency may be retained by contract pursuant to N.J.A.C. 5:23.

Annual report. The Construction Official shall, with the advice of the subcode officials, prepare and submit to the Township Committee of the Township of Pittsgrove biannually a report recommending a fee schedule based on the operating expenses of the agency and any other expenses of the municipality fairly attributable to the enforcement of the State Uniform Construction Code Act.
Editor's Note: See N.J.S.A. 52:27D-119 et seq.
In order to provide for the training, certification and technical support programs required by the Uniform Construction Code Act and the regulations, the enforcing agency shall collect, in addition to the fees specified above, a training fee at a rate established by N.J.A.C. 5:23-4.19(b) and all amendments thereto per cubic foot of volume of new construction.
The required training fee shall be remitted to the Bureau of Housing Inspection, Department of Community Affairs, on a quarterly basis for the fiscal quarters ending September 30, December 31, March 31 and June 30 and not later than one month next succeeding the end of the quarter for which it is due.
[Added 9-13-2005 by Ord. No. 9-2005; amended 3-14-2006 by Ord. No. 4-2006]
All inspections and reinspections must be scheduled by appointment with the Construction Office.
Applicants canceling a scheduled appointment for an inspection or reinspection must provide notice to the Construction Office at least 24 hours prior to the time of the scheduled appointment, exclusive of weekends and holidays, or a fee of $60 shall be assessed.
A reinspection fee of $60 shall be assessed for each inspection or reinspection when such portion of work for which the reinspection has been called is not complete in accordance with the initial inspection.
Should a reinspection or noncancellation fee be assessed, no further inspections or reinspections shall be conducted until such fees have been paid. This provision is not to be interpreted as requiring reinspection fees the first time a project is rejected for failure to comply with the requirements of this Code, but rather as controlling the practice of calling for inspections before the project is ready for inspection or reinspection. The Construction Office shall have sole discretion in determining when aforesaid fee shall be assessed.
