Peddling and soliciting — See Ch. 274.
The Township of Lebanon hereby establishes an "Exchange Zone" for conducting in-person private transactions involving a Township resident that have been facilitated through online marketplaces to be located in an area of the Municipal Parking Lot of the Municipal Building, as designated by visible and appropriate signage, at 530 West Hill Road, Glen Gardner, New Jersey, to be designated the Exchange Zone.
Private exchange of motor vehicles, weapons, illegal substances or items that do not fit in a ten-foot-by-ten-foot parking space shall not be permitted.
Township officials will not provide police personnel or Township staff to witness any transaction in person, but the video recording surveillance and proximity to police headquarters is meant to increase the public's peace of mind when engaging in such transactions with unfamiliar individuals in the Exchange Zone.
The Township of Lebanon makes no guarantees, assurances, or promises with respect to the condition or authenticity of any items exchanged between private parties.
The Township of Lebanon makes no guarantees, assurances, or promises as to the safety or security of any in-person transactions that may take place on Township property.
The Township of Lebanon makes no guarantees, assurances, or promises as to availability of the Exchange Zone at any particular date or time.
The Township encourages all persons to engage in such transactions in daylight hours only; to bring a cell phone along in case of an emergency; to notify friends and/or family of the intention to meet to conduct such a transaction; to never invite strangers to their home or agree to meet at a stranger's home; and to reconsider any transaction with someone who refuses to meet at the Municipal Building Exchange Zone.
