Concerns about ATVs and Dirt Bikes

Complaints continue to be received from residents in various areas of the Township about illegal use of ATVs and dirt bikes on public roads and other people's private property. It is important for the message to be carried: Individuals violating this law will be prosecuted. If youths are involved, their parents will be held accountable. PLEASE! It is a matter of safety. It is a matter of courtesy. And IT IS A MATTER OF THE LAW. Keep ATV's and Dirt Bikes off public roads and property, and off the private property of people who have not given you permission for the use of their property.

Trimming Trees/Bushes on Public Rights of Way

From time to time, the Township must trim hedges, bushes, tree branches, shrubbery and other forms of landscaping planted along the public right of way. If you have trees or bushes planted along the public right of way, and you do not want the Township to trim them, for fear that we may damage the plant or tree, please contact the Administrator's office at 973-875-7192. We will have a member of the Public Works Department come out and explain our needs, and if it is necessary to improve sight distance, we will allow you the opportunity to trim and prune the plants yourself, in a way that you find acceptable and will at the same time meet the needs of the public for safety along the roads. Please work with us on this issue! If we do not hear from you, and the public's safety is being compromised by sight distance problems, we will take appropriate action to prune and trim the branches and shrubs. Take a pro-active stance now to protect your curb-side landscaping, if you think this will be a problem or issue for you.
