Parking on a section of a Tinton Falls street without adjacent housing has been prohibited by the Borough Council.
During a recent meeting, council members took action to prohibit parking at all times on a portion of Churchill Downs Drive. The prohibited portion is on both sides from the eastern property line of 16 Churchill Downs Drive to the eastern property line of 22 Churchill Downs Drive.
The parking prohibition was made on the recommendation of the Tinton Falls Police Department due to safety concerns, according to municipal officials.
Churchill Downs Drive does not have an outlet. The section between 16 Churchill Downs Drive and 22 Churchill Downs Drive where the parking is prohibited does not have any houses adjacent to its curb.
And, council members voted to donate a 2011 Chevy Tahoe K-9 vehicle to the Middletown Township Police Department. The vehicle is no longer needed in Tinton Falls and they said Middletown officials had expressed interest in obtaining the vehicle for use by the police department’s K-9 unit.
“Middletown has proven to be a good neighboring municipality (and) on more than one occasion has provided assistance to Tinton Falls,” council members said in a resolution.
The vehicle was provided to Middletown for the nominal fee of $1, according to the resolution.
