The Toms River township council will meet Tuesday night and discuss several items, including the reduction of the speed limit on a well-traveled road in town.
The council will vote to introduce an ordinance reducing the speed limit on on Silverton Road, between Church Road and North Bay Avenue, from 40 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour.
The council will also vote, on final reading, to establish a minimum separation distance between two liquor stores. The ordinance, as proposed, states that any new liquor store which receives a plenary distribution license – the type of license required to sell liquor in New Jersey – cannot be located within 2,500 feet of another liquor store.
The exception to the ordinance would be a store that is located on the opposite side of a state, county or municipal road that has at least two lanes of traffic in each direction.
A public hearing will be held before the vote on the liquor store law; the speed limit law will simply be introduced and still must be approved on a second reading.
The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the township municipal complex.
