JCPL To Perform Post Windstorm Damage Assessment
Please be advised that HeloAir will be mobilizing to the region to perform post-storm damage assessment on various 34.5kV lines in NNJ and CNJ. Upon completion of the damage assessment of the 34.5kV lines, HeloAir will begin performing routine visual patrols on ALL JCPL bulk transmission lines 115kV-500kV in NNJ and CNJ. The helicopter to be used for these patrols is a blue and white Bell 206 Jet Ranger with tail registration number N701HA. These patrols are to begin as soon as the helicopter arrives – ETA will be later this afternoon, today, 2/27 and patrols to begin either today if daylight permits or will begin tomorrow, 2/28. Completion of any and all patrols is strictly weather dependent – estimated time of completion could be anywhere from 1-2 weeks. It should be noted that the contractor has been authorized to patrol the transmission circuits in their entirety (i.e. "breaker-to-breaker"), so patrols on certain lines may therefore extend into the neighboring regions. The flight crew provides information on their daily location to both Transmission Lines Maintenance and the FCC, and the pilot will be in communication with any local airports when in their airspace. Please advise local Safety Forces and other public entities or sensitive customers as needed.

Autumn is the deer breeding season, or ‘rut’. The rut brings a peak in deer movement and we experience more deer on New Jersey roads, leading to a number of deer-vehicle collisions. Municipal vehicles are not immune from this hazard and in some cases, their operations can increase the likelihood, such as the 24 / 7 / 365 operations of police, fire and EMS agencies. Click the link above to find more information regarding best practices for avoiding deer-vehicle collisions.
Status of Electricity COOP
If you were participating in the Borough endorsed Electricity Coop, you recently received a letter stating that the contract would expire this month. The Coop was unable to obtain an energy rate at the August auction that would allow them to achieve the minimum of 5% savings over the J.C.P.& L rate for the coming winter months. As promised, you will automatically revert to J.C.P.& L for the energy portion of your bill. You do not have to do anything and there will be no interruption of your electric service. The Coop was able to get rates with savings beginning in March of 2019. You should get notices in January or March asking if you would like to opt out of the program. If you do nothing you will automatically be re-enrolled in the program.
Raccoon - Pet Warning
Muskrat Jack, the Borough’s Animal Control Officer, has informed us of a k-9 distemper epidemic in raccoons. In the last week, he has picked up and euthanized 5 raccoons in Point Pleasant Beach with k-9 distemper, and indicated that it has spread to surrounding towns. Symptoms mimic rabies; raccoons acting strange during daylight hours. His concerns are that distemper is highly contagious to PETS, and is spread airborne. He asked that anyone encountering a raccoon exhibiting this behavior, call the police department immediately so they can dispatch him as soon as possible. Also, as a precaution, make sure your pets are up to date on all their vaccinations.
