There are plenty of quirky laws on the books in towns throughout New Jersey. In Haddon Township, Statute 175-12 says it is illegal to annoy someone of the opposite sex. Hoboken prohibits residents from operating legalized “games of chance” such as bingo on Sundays before 1 p.m. And in Blairstown, Statute 171-2 says shade trees may be planted along streets and highways, but only if they don’t “obscure light and air.”
Now, a group of Fanwood residents are hoping for an amendment to ordinance 118-23B, which reads: “No dog, except a guide dog accompanying a blind or otherwise disabled person, is permitted in any public park of the Borough of Fanwood, regardless of whether such dog is controlled by a leash.”
But not Fanwood.
