WALL TOWNSHIP — The township committee will introduce an ordinance at next week’s meeting that would establish two parking spots at the municipal complex designated for the use of military veterans.
The two spots will be adjacent to existing spaces for handicapped persons after local veterans made the request to the township. Once established, signage will be placed in front of each spot.
“Several years ago, the township started trying to direct more municipal activities towards veterans and by doing that we’ve been able to get additional feedback from the veterans and eventually, one of the [comments] we received and one that was reiterated recently was the fact that they wanted to know if the township would consider doing veteran parking as well,” Wall Township Administrator Jeff Bertrand told The Coast Star.
The ordinance will be introduced at the Feb. 24 township committee meeting before a public hearing and potential adoption at the March 3 meeting.
According to the ordinance, nonveterans found parking in the two spots would be subject to a $50 fine. Subsequent violations would result in a $100 fine.
