SERVICE SHUTOFF MORATORIUM

BE ADVISED that Executive Order 229 currently prohibits a local government from shutting off water or electric service to a residential customer, or to accounts primarily serving residential customers, due to nonpayment of water, sewer, or electric charges unless the disconnection is to prevent or ameliorate a risk to public health or safety. This shutoff moratorium remains in effect until March 15, 2022. 

Note: The Borough does not shut off water due to non-payment of bills. However, Borough policy allows electricity to be shut off due to non-payment.

LATE PAYMENT PENALTY AND LIEN ENFORCEMENT MORATORIUM

BE ADVISED that, until March 15, 2022, Executive Order 229 places a moratorium on local governments enforcing late payment charges and penalties on water or electric accounts or referring a delinquent water or electric payment to tax sale. On or after March 15, 2022, charges and penalties may be imposed for delinquent payments, and any payments remaining delinquent may be referred to a tax lien sale held by the municipal tax collector. 

BILL ASSISTANCE AND ARREARAGE FORGIVENESS PROGRAMS

The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) is currently developing a Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).

Electric is billed monthly and is based on consumption from the prior month meter read to the current month meter read.
