Beach Haven Making Angle Parking Official 

Jul 12, 2017

An ordinance introduced by the Beach Haven Borough Council Monday night will formalize angle parking in the borough.

Such parking exists on the main thoroughfare of Bay Avenue as well as other wide streets. However, Mayor Nancy Taggart Davis said there never was any ordinance creating angle parking.

“Without an ordinance, it might be difficult to enforce,” she said. “There is always the possibility that somebody might park incorrectly, but without having it in the book, I don’t know if there is much we can do.”

Davis said there is one ordinance that allows for angle parking on West Avenue near the Little Egg Harbor Yacht Club.

“But nowhere else in town is it ever specified,” she said. “It would be like having an illegal traffic light. If someone runs through it, can you really enforce it? Probably not.”

A public hearing on the ordinance is scheduled for the next meeting on Monday, Aug. 14, 7 p.m.  —E.E.
