If you have any questions, please contact the Municipal Clerk's office at (609) 494-3064.


Added assessment bills have been recently sent out. Many of the added assessments indicate
Storm Repair as the reason for the added. The actual cause of many of the Storm Repair added
assessments is the removal of a State-authorized storm code that was applied to your improvement
after Sandy. Removal of this code brings your improvement assessment back to the level it was
prior to Sandy. Should you have any questions or concerns please contact Walter R. Higgins, Jr., Assessor, at 609-494-3554 on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm.
