Did you receive an orange Unsafe Structure Notice on your home? PDF Print E-mail

Code Enforcement officials are actively working on identifying properties that are deemed unsafe to live in. Officials began this process in the Ortley Beach section last week and will then move on to the North Beach area and the mainland in Toms River.

Business Administrator Paul Shives stated, “These inspections are necessary for the Township to conduct so that we can apply for FEMA funding. Some of these homes may fall under the demolition/Private Property Debris Removal (PPDR) program, and if we can help these homeowners remove debris or knock down the homes before the FEMA deadline, there would be no cost to these residents.”

Mayor Thomas Kelaher said, “We are looking at unsafe storm-damaged homes, unoccupied homes with storm-related debris in the yard, and homes that are structurally unsound or pose a health hazard. It has been almost a year and there is a presumption that homeowners have done nothing or may not be a position to do anything. In addition, this will help our police patrols better identify whether anyone should be in the house because the premises should be unoccupied. None of these identified homes have working utilities.”

If you own a home with an Unsafe Structure Notice, you cannot occupy the structure until utilities are available.   This does not in any way prohibit a property owner from working on the structure. However, under the Code, a property is not fit for occupancy if electricity, gas service, water and sewer service are unavailable.

If you have any questions concerning this program, please contact our Code Enforcement Office at 732-341-1000 ext. 8440.
