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.
