Jackson: Ordinance Introduced To Allow Police To Crack Down On Illegally Parked Cars

According to Jackson Council President Jennifer Kuhn, illegal parking is an issue in some areas where people have been parking cars longterm on public streets and public medians.

The new ordinance will allow the Jackson Police Department to tow and impound vehicles who continuously violate the township’s parking ordinances and impact quality of life in neighborhoods.

“The fines in place don’t seem to be deterring people from violating our laws,” said Councilman Mordechai Burnstein. “This ordinance would allow the police department to enforce the law and to remove vehicles from the public right of way that have been abandoned on township streets and public right of ways.”

Mayor Michael Reina commended the council for their attention on the matter.

“Quality of life issues are a priority for my administration and for this council and I thank them for that,” Reina said. “I will immediately sign this ordinance into law when it is formally approved and put on my desk.”
