Residents Asked to Comply with the Snow Removal Ordinance

Posted: November 7, 2016

Issues with the lack of snow removal from sidewalks were encountered in some neighborhoods last winter. Under Sec. 44-316 of the township code, property owners are required to keep sidewalks clear of snow and ice. Non-compliance will result in a summons being issued for the violation. Below is the section as it pertains to snow and ice removal:

Sec. 44-316. Maintenance and repair responsibilities of property owners.
(1) Every owner of property on which a sidewalk fronts is required to keep the sidewalk and accessibility ramps at road intersections free and clear of snow and ice. If a property on which a sidewalk fronts is a commercial property or is located on a designated school walking route, all snow and ice shall be removed within 12 hours of daylight after any snowfall or accumulation of ice occurs. If ice is so frozen as to make removal impractical, the owner of a commercial property or property located on a designated school walking route shall cause the sidewalk to be thoroughly covered with sand, ashes or rock salt within six hours of daylight after the accumulation of such ice. The owners of all properties other than commercial properties or those properties located on a designated school walking route shall cause all snow and ice to be removed within 24 hours of daylight after any snowfall or accumulation of ice occurs.

For a complete list of designated walking routes, private developments and private roads, view additional provisions of the snow removal ordinance.

The Randolph Police Department requests that you comply with the ordinance, and that you develop a plan for snow removal this winter. If you have any questions, please call the Support Services Unit at 973.989.7021. Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.

The data collection and valuation phase of the revaluation has been completed. In mid-November 2016, all property owners will be notified via first class mail of their proposed assessed value to be utilized for the 2017 tax year.

An informal meeting will be available for those property owners who have questions or concerns about the preliminary assessment of their property.

In order to accommodate Randolph taxpayers, Appraisal Systems Inc. has arranged to conduct these meetings mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends at a location within the township. These meetings are anticipated to begin in mid-November and conclude by December 22, 2016.

Please refer to the value notification letter for instructions on how to schedule an appointment with the firm, if so desired. If you do not have questions or concerns about your assessed value, there is no need to schedule an appointment.
