For the first time in recent memory, Borough Hall will have office hours from 7:30 a.m. till 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the months of July and August. This will allow residents to come in before or after work to conduct borough business such as filing for permits, paying their taxes, submitting applications, etc. The Borough Clerk’s office, the Construction Department, and the Tax and Finance Offices will all be open during those hours. Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays will have Borough Hall open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Initially, the possibility was discussed to have Borough Hall close on Fridays but the governing body felt that doing so would too much of an inconvenience for residents. Ultimately, all parties reached the current compromise which, if productive, will be implemented again in the future.
The extended hours do not apply to the Department of Public Works (DPW) which will have its regular hours of 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Anyone with questions can contact the Borough Clerk’s officer at (908) 245-6222.
