New Jersey American Water - Fire Hydrant Flushing
This is an important message from New Jersey American Water. New Jersey American Water will begin routine flushing of the water distribution system in your area Monday, April 8th thru Tuesday, April 30th from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. to ensure that you continue to receive high-quality water service. Flushing also allows us to monitor and maintain fire hydrants. When crews are working in your area, you may notice reduced pressure or discolored water. If your water is discolored, let it run until it runs clear before using. This should only take a few minutes.

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.
