The entire town was reassessed based on the sales data in each neighborhood. If no sales data was present, a comparable neighborhood was utilized to determine the new 2015 value. The taxable value of the town has gone up and as a result the tax rate will come down. An increase in assessment does not necessarily translate to a tax increase. The current tax rate for 2014 is $2.331. At this point the estimated tax rate would be reduced to $2.17 without taking into account any budgetary increases in 2015. Please refer to the assessment demonstration program by clicking on the site below for an explanation of this new assessment program that was signed into law affecting all 53 Monmouth County municipalities. A calendar lists tax appeal dates as well.

JCP&L customers who use electrically operated life support equipment or depend on private well water can register their account with the company to get updates on potential interruptions to their electric service, such as weather-related outages during the summer storm season.
JCP&L maintains a critical care list of customers who depend on electrically operated life support equipment. To be included on this list, every year customers must complete and submit an authorization form signed by their physician. The list is used to contact customers should an outage affect their electric service for more than 24 hours.
JCP&L also has a list of homes and businesses that depend on electrically operated private wells for water. These customers also are notified if a power outage is expected to affect their electric service for more than 24 hours, in which case they would be advised of locations where water and ice are available.
Both the critical care customer and private well customer lists are provided to county and municipal Offices of Emergency Management.
To receive additional information and register accounts for the programs call 1-800-662-3115.
