SEWER COLLECTION

The Sewer Use billing is based on water consumption.   The six months used for the 2017 billings are as follow:

JANUARY, FEBRUARY AND MARCH, 2016
OCTOBER, NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER, 2016

The Sewer Collector receives water reading reports from NJ American Water Company.

Sewer Use bills are billed once a year and shall be due 30 days after sewer bills are mailed with a 10 day grace period.

There is a $75.00 service charge for each individual Sewer user account.

Plus –

A)   The new Sewer charge is $16.61 per 1,000 gallons.

B)   The new Well charges are:  Residential $440 per year and Commercial rate is $575.

A Senior Citizen Deduction in the amount of $15.00 is allowed for any senior who is over 65 years of age by the end of the prior tax year.  Proof of age must be submitted with the deduction form available in the Tax Office.

To appeal your sewer bill charges you must appeal in writing.
