Some say threat of jail for petty disorderly offenses in Montclair should be stricken

If you get a parking ticket, violate Montclair’s leaf blower, noise or loitering laws, don’t clean up after your dog, feed the geese, trespass on a railroad or don’t license your bicycle you could face jail time — at least theoretically — according to Montclair’s codes. The 90-day clause is attached to hundreds of small violations.
