The township recently switched to a new system of enforcing the Zoning
Ordinance. Instead of seeking an injunction from a court to correct a
violation, we now issue a notice of Municipal Civil Infraction. The violator
is given a ticket, then deals with the District Court - who assesses fines,
court costs and order compliance.
Administrator is the enforcement officer. Contact the Zoning Administrator
to report or inquire about possible violations.
