The November 3rd General Election will primarily be held through vote-by-mail. All active registered New Jersey voters will automatically receive a prepaid return-postage vote-by-mail ballot from their County Clerks. All ballots will be mailed by Monday, October 5th.

TAX News = GOOD News:  No increase this year

 

2020/21 Tax rate (2.983) vs. 2019/20 tax rate (2.981) = Average tax rate of 2.98

 

This is the 3rd consecutive year with the same overall tax rate of 2.98

For various reasons, Covid-19 included, estimated bills were used for the August 1 payments (2020 3rd quarter). 

Because these estimates were high, the 4th quarter billing will be lower than last year’s 4th quarter to compensate.

Final billings will come well in advance of the November 1 payment.

 

2020 MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY

The Memorial Day Ceremony that was originally postponed until Labor Day is now officially cancelled do to the COVID restrictions on public gatherings.
