  TOMS RIVER – The Toms River Quality of Life Task Force and township Code Enforcement officers responded to complaints of a residential pool being used for a fee.

  They witnessed two separate passenger buses from Jay’s Bus Service dropping off and picking up a total of 85 children whose families were paying for the use of the pool. The incident happened in the afternoon of July 26.

  The owner of the property, located in the North Dover section, was issued summonses for failing to obtain a permit for commercial use of a private swimming pool and renting a swimming pool.

  “The Township has ordinances in place which prohibit daily rentals of houses and swimming pools in residential neighborhoods,” Mayor Maurice Hill said. “As Mayor, it is my job to enforce these ordinances and I remind our residents that any similar violations will be addressed in the same manner.”

  The investigation is continuing, but to date, no further violations have been observed. A court date of August 10, 2020, has been scheduled.
