The Office of the Municipal Clerk
"Your Doorway to Local Government"

The office of the Municipal Clerk is historical in its traditions, serving as a direct link between residents and their local government since Biblical times. The early keepers of archives were often called "rememberers" and before writing came into use, their memory served as the public record.

NJ Statutes define the Municipal Clerk's responsibilities as:

  • Secretary to the Governing Body
  • Secretary to the Municipal Corporation
  • Administrative and Licensing Officer
  • Election Administrator and Registrar of Voters
  • Custodian of Records
However, these core duties reflect just a portion of the many responsibilities and activities of the Municipal Clerk's Office.

Cold Weather Tips & Info from PSE&G PDF Print E-mail

PSE&G logoPublic Service Electric and Gas Company (PSE&G) is monitoring its gas system and has additional personnel on staff and standby to ensure it can meet the heating demands of customers. The utility is prepared to quickly respond to emergency “no heat” calls and electric outages during the frigid weather predicted for this weekend.

“Throughout the weekend we will operate and manage our gas distribution system to ensure our customers have the gas they need to keep their homes warm and businesses running,” said Joe Forline, vice president of gas operations for PSE&G. “Over the past several years we have replaced critical feeds in our gas distribution system. This and other infrastructure investments have strengthened our system’s performance and reliability.”

Since Tuesday, the utility has received about 2,000 “no heat” calls from customers. “We expect that number to spike this weekend when people are home and furnaces are working extra hard,” said Forline. “Customers should be aware that although their heating systems may be working properly, the frigid temperatures make it difficult for furnaces to maintain the same thermostat setting.”

If your heating system is not working properly or if you need to report a “no heat” incident, schedule an appointment by calling 800-436-PSEG (7734) or online through My Account.
