Borough Survey and Revised Trash and Recycling Schedule

On Thursday, July 30, 2020 tax bills were mailed out. In the same mailing, residents were sent an informational letter from Borough Administrator, Ryan Giles, regarding adjustments being made to the Borough’s trash routes and the days trash will be collected.  The revised trash schedule will go into effect on Monday, August 17, 2020.

SURVEY:  Also included with the tax bill mailing, is a survey Mayor and Council developed with questions about Borough services.  The purpose of the anonymous survey is to help Mayor and Council better understand residents’ wants and needs, along with concerns and opinions.  Be advised, we are asking for your street name in Question #1 so that the feedback received can be broken down into sections of the Borough. It is our hope that all residents can take a few minutes to complete the survey so that concerns can be addressed. The survey can be completed online at:

Please note the survey should not be about property taxes and is non-binding. Mayor and Council are fully aware of your concerns about property taxes in New Jersey and we are always looking at ways to keep our property tax at a minimum while keeping the same services within the town that we all enjoy.

Anyone with questions about the survey, should contact the Borough Administrator, Ryan Giles at 856-456-0030, ext. 111.

Your cooperation in completing the survey will be appreciated.
