An Important Message from PSE&G:
We've heard your calls for better communication and made some significant changes there, too. We've ramped up our pre-storm messaging across all channels, with a focus on helping you understand what to expect from an event, how you can prepare and stay safe, and how you can best communicate with us. We launched MyAlerts, which allows our customers to opt in for text messages as well as email notifications about outages in their area and service restoration. We urge all our customers to sign up for MyAlerts (http://www.pseg.com/myalerts) and to update contact information with us now, before the next storm hits. Meanwhile, more communications upgrades are on the way. By this spring, customers will be able to report outages via text message, too. And, very soon, customers will be able to get localized outage information online and through their smart phones

The Borough is looking for residents who are willing to work on our volunteer boards.
Residents who wish to dispose of grass clippings should put them out with their regular trash collection in closed plastic bags or containers. Loose grass clippings CANNOT be put out at the curb or in the street. Grass clippings are not recyclable due to the lawn chemicals that remain on grass for a long time and most make the clippings unsuitable for mulch which is why loose grass clippings cannot be recycled.
