Now, therefore, be it ordained, by the Governing Body of the Township of Randolph, County of Morris, State of New Jersey, as follows:
The Section of Appendix A, Fee Schedule, of Revised Ordinances of the Township of Randolph, Morris County, New Jersey governing Lead-Based Paint Inspection Fees is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced by the following:
Lead-Based Paint Inspection Fees:
(1) Visual Inspection Fees. Notwithstanding any other fees due, a Lead Based Inspection Fee in the amount of $200.00 per dwelling unit shall be paid for each lead-based paint inspection. Said fee shall be dedicated to meeting the costs of implementing and enforcing Chapter 26, Article X, and shall not be used for any other purpose. Alternatively, a dwelling owner or landlord may directly hire a private lead evaluation contractor who is certified to provide lead paint inspection services by the Department of Community Affairs.
(2) New Jersey Department of Community Affairs Lead Hazard Control Assistance Fund. This $20 fee collected by the municipality is a mandatory assessment required by the Department of Community Affairs pursuant to N.J.S.A. 52:27D-437.16(h).
(3) Dust Wipe Sample Fee (if required). There is a $35 fee per sample which covers the cost of collecting the dust sample and the related laboratory analysis.
(4) In a common interest community, any inspection fee charged shall be the responsibility of the unit owner and not the homeowners' association, unless the association is the owner of the unit.
All Ordinances of the Township of Randolph which are inconsistent with the provisions of this Ordinance are hereby repealed as to the extent of such inconsistency.
If any section, subsection, clause, or phrase of this Ordinance is for any reason held to be unconstitutional or invalid by any Court of competent jurisdiction, such decision shall not affect the remaining portions of this Ordinance.
This Ordinance shall take effect as provided by law.
