GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (January 8, 20223)(CNBNewsnet)--Bob Eberle, a longtime resident of West Market Street and the city of Gloucester City, notified the public in October about the transient residents living in that block, saving parking spots in front of their rentals, with empty trash cans and other objects. Eberle says that local police ride by scenes like the one above every day and do nothing about it even though the person responsible is breaking the N.J. Admin. Code § 19:4-8.2
CNBNews contacted Lt. Jason Flood, spokesperson for the Gloucester City Police Department, and asked him to provide the city statute about parking rules. We also asked him why the city police do not enforce this blatant violation of the state parking rules. As of this date, we are still waiting for his response.
