Code Enforcement

On May 24, 2016 the Township of Fredon adopted Ordinance #2016-03 regarding vacant and abandoned properties in the Township.  
The owner of any vacant property shall, within 30 days after the building becomes vacant property or within 30 days after assuming ownership of the vacant property, whichever is later file a registration statement for each such vacant property with the Township of Fredon on forms provided by the Township of Fredon for such purposes.

Numbering of commercial & residential buildings: All commercial and residential buildings established within the Township shall be subject to being numbered for proper identification, especially for reasons of expediency in fire, police and medical emergencies. If you have any questions, please call 973-383-7025, Ext. #21 for further details.

Accessory Structures: If you are planning to add a storage building, shed or other accessory structure (e.g., a swimming pool) including a membrane structure a zoning permit is required. Additionally, fencing requires a zoning permit. If what you are planning to add either permanently or temporarily is located on the ground a zoning permit is required and perhaps a building permit.

When planning, be sure to keep clear of water supply, gas lines and septic systems.
