Township Update

Please note the following:

  • Pleasant Valley Road Closed–Tuesday (7/21) from 7am-5pm, construction crews will be performing asphalt pavement restoration along the recently installed sections of concrete curb on Pleasant Valley Road between Conover Road and Mockingbird Lane.  The scheduled time frame for this work is weather-dependent, and every effort will be made to minimize any inconvenience to residents during this time.  The road will be closed during construction and Police Officers will be on site to assist motorists and residents. Please avoid the area, if possible.  For ongoing construction and roadwork updates, please visit Road Repair
  • Marlboro Water Utility – A reminder that hot weather and summer stay-cations can bring with it higher water usage and a higher water bill.  Water bills are driven by consumption so the more water utilized, the higher your bill.  This is why bills reflecting summer usage are so high relative to the rest of the year.  This past spring, the Water Utility sent the following message on how to check for leaks and conserve water so there are no surprises when you receive your water bill.  If you have not yet done so, please review that letter HERE.
  • JCP&L reminds customers to stay cool and conserve energy when the temperatures rise HERE.  PAYMENT PLANS are available that can help ease seasonal fluctuations in your electric bill. Heat and summer storms can bring power outages.  Should you experience an outage, it is important to report it to JCP&L using one of their phone, online, or texting options OUTAGE REPORTING Reporting helps JCP&L to pinpoint the outage location and restore service more quickly.  For reference, JCP&L is on the Township website’s ‘Quick Links and Actions’ section throughout the year. 
  • Annual Property Tax Bill - In light of the disruption caused by the coronavirus outbreak and the resulting delay in certification of taxes by the State of New Jersey, the annual tax bills are not available at this time. It is anticipated that the rate will be available and the tax bills will be mailed by the end of July. Pursuant to Statutory law, the grace period for 3rd quarter property taxes (due August 1st) will be extended based on the mailing date. The grace period will be specified on the tax bill and the Township will update via the email and by posting on the Township website. Note that interest charges on payments made after the grace period are calculated back to the August 1 due date.
