The Borough Council finds and declares that problems of traffic control occur when traffic must be moved through or around street construction, maintenance operations and utility work, above or below the ground which requires blocking the street and obstructing the normal flow of traffic; and that such obstructions are or can become dangerous when not properly controlled. In order to better promote the public health, safety, peace and welfare, it is necessary to establish controls and regulations directed to the safe and expeditious movement of traffic through and around construction and maintenance zones and to provide safety for the work forces performing these operations.
The Borough of Roosevelt, in the County of Monmouth, State of New Jersey does hereby adopt the current Manual on Uniform Control Devices for Streets and Highways hereafter known as the M.U.T.C.D., except as hereby supplemented and amended, as it controls and regulates whenever construction, maintenance operations or utility work obstructs the normal flow of traffic. Any person, contractor or utility that fails to comply with the provisions of the M.U.T.C.D. while performing such work is in violation of this section.

It shall be the responsibility of the person, contractor, or in the case of a public utility as required under a public utility agreement, wishing to conduct work on, under or above the street to contact the Borough Engineer, in order to arrange a preconstruction meeting and submit plans for the safe movement of traffic during such period of construction or work. Any person, contractor or utility who fails to comply with this section prior to the start of such work, or whose plans are not approved by the Borough Engineer is in violation of this section.
[New]
The person, contractor or utility shall provide at least two emergency contract telephone numbers to be called in case of emergency problems at the construction or maintenance site prior to the start of any work.

The reasonable fees for such emergency services by the Borough shall be charged to the person, contractor, or utility responsible for the condition.
