The Township Board of Commissioners finds that the Township is largely residential and that there are significant numbers of families residing within the Township. The prevailing sense and attitude in the Township is that nonemergency nocturnal and weekend outdoor work activity should be restricted or reduced for the health, safety and welfare of the residents of the community.
It is hereby ordained that no contractor, builder, paver or other entity performing public or private work in the Township shall conduct nonemergency outdoor work on any day prior to 7:00 a.m. or after dusk.
It is further ordained that no contractor, builder, paver or other entity performing public work on behalf of the Township shall conduct nonemergency outdoor work on Sundays unless given written permission by the Township Code Enforcement Officer in advance of such work. The granting of such permission shall be solely within the discretion of the Code Enforcement Officer, but the following factors shall be utilized as guidelines:
In the event of emergency, an agent and/or contractor may conduct outdoor construction work during the periods prohibited by this chapter, but shall make a reasonable attempt to obtain the permission of the Township Code Enforcement Officer in advance of conducting such work. If such contractor is unable to contact the Code Enforcement Officer, he shall report the nature of the emergency and provide a description of the work necessitated by such emergency, including the dates and times thereof, within 24 hours of performing the same.
The Code Enforcement Officer is empowered to prepare, publish and distribute rules and regulations to carry out the provisions of this chapter.
A violation of this chapter shall be deemed to be a civil summary offense. Any such person or entity found guilty shall be subject to a fine of $100 and costs for each offense.
