Residents can now pay their property taxes and utility bills online thanks to a new service linked to on the township’s Web site.
Residents can pay their property taxes, utility bills, court fines, and register for events sponsored by the township’s parks and recreation department.
There are several options when visiting the page. Clicking on the Online Payment Center link under Pay My Taxes takes residents to a page where they can pay their property taxes and utility bills for free. Users can set up a schedule to have payments deducted from a checking account on a recurring basis. The system accepts electronic checks.
Individuals will need to submit an application to the revenue collection division to have payments automatically deducted from a checking account. (Copies of the applications for recurring tax and utility payments have been attached to this article.)
Those assessed with fines for a traffic violation can also pay their fine online via the NJMC Direct service. Violators need to have their parking or traffic ticket, and license plate number handy when paying a fine. Credit or debit cards with a Visa or MasterCard logo may be used.
Users will have a pay a convenience fee between $1 and $4 to use the direct service system.
The system is made possible through E-Government Systems, a company that provides state and municipal governments with payment solutions and other online services.
The parks and recreation department also has a special Web site where residents can register for a class or activity.
The site also features several sub-categories of various activities, lessons, trips, and facility badges.
Residents can also register to receive RSS feeds, traffic advisories, and public notices from the township through the township’s Web site.
