The Township Council of East Brunswick, NJ, has ordered Nieroda
Transport to cease operations or face legal action.
According to the East Brunswick
Sentinel, the order comes on the heels of numerous noise complaints
from nearby residents. The residents also argued that the business was not
permitted in the area under town zoning laws.
The township has sent a letter to the owners of the building that
houses the trucking company, which states that the business must be closed
within 10 days or legal action will be taken.
John Nieroda, owner of the business, told the Sentinel that his company is a specialized
business that only uses a limited number of trucks per day. Neiroda said the
trucks usually don’t idle while they are parked. However, the police did
recently give the company a citation for idling violations.
Nieroda also said that the town was fully aware of what his business
was when it first went into the building, and he obtained permits and a
certificate of occupancy for the building from the town.
