As the weather warms, we start thinking about gathering family and friends for barbeques. Here is just a friendly reminder about the laws pertaining to grilling in your apartment or on your balcony.
New Jersey State Law PROHIBITS the use or storage of gas, propane, charcoal or any other type of open flame grill in or around an apartment building, including balconies and inside your apartment. Only electric grills, like those sold under the George Foreman brand, are permitted in your apartment or on your balcony.
If you break the law you can expect fines from not only the State or local municipality, but also from your landlord as you are jeopardizing the safety of your fellow tenants.
Please contact your local Parks and Recreations department to see if grilling is permitted in any public areas in your town. Remember, you are not permitted to store a gas, charcoal or open flame grill anywhere on the property.
