Ordinance enforcement:

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.

The Zoning Administrator is the enforcement officer. Contact the Zoning Administrator to report or inquire about possible violations.
