We understand that as the COVID situation continues to unfold, it can be difficult to navigate the excess (and sometimes LACK of) information readily available. Additionally- as schools, businesses, and events begin to temporarily close or postpone activities - many are left wondering what happens next. Until we as a community are sure what the next phase will be or what actions will be necessary, it is within everyone's capability to do what they can to help prevent the spread of germs. From avoiding close contact with people who are sick, staying home when you are sick, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces to washing your hands often.
In an effort to encourage social distancing, residents are reminded of the online service for tax and sewer payments at www.jamesburgborough.org, We encourage you to please consider the use of our drop box outside of borough hall for payments of sewer and taxes. Please consider online resources or calling Borough Hall at 732-521-2222 instead of visiting to avoid exposure for yourself and our employees. Our doors will be locked with instructions on how to proceed with your business. If you are feeling ill, in any way, do not visit Jamesburg Borough Hall.
