Code Enforcement Officials Hired

Moorestown recently hired 2 part-time employees to help ensure compliance with Moorestown's quality-of-life ordinances.   In addition to responding to particular complaints and questions, they will be traveling through various parts of the Township as time allows to identify issues and bring about compliance with our Municipal Code.  These officers will do their best to give friendly warnings where there are first offenses, work with folks who have various challenges that complicate compliance, and generally help people understand the obligations and the rules.   Though the Code Enforcement Officers are not Moorestown Township Police Officers, they do have the appropriate training and background to issue court summonses for incidents and violations when warranted.  One quality of life issue they will be focusing on in the coming months is compliance with appropriately placing leaves at the curb (off the street) on designated days.   These rules are in place to prevent unsafe traffic conditions and to prevent flooding that occurs when rain or wind causes debris to block stormwater systems inlets.  Other quality of life ordinances the Officers will be looking to enforce include: property maintenance ordinances -- especially among vacant or abandoned houses; garbage and recycling ordinances regulations; stormwater ordinances; encroachment ordinances and other matters.  We appreciate that the overwhelming majority of folks want, and do, comply with quality of life ordinances.  These officers are intended to benefit the entire community by helping everyone understand what the rules are and why they exist, and to enforce them as necessary.    The following are sites that may help you understand the code requirements on important issues.  If you have questions, please email azappasodi@moorestown.nj.us.  Should you need to alert the Township of a code violation, please do so through our on-line reporting system at www.moorestown.nj.us "Report a Concern" at the bottom of the home page.
