Don't forget every June we have a dumpster at the borough hall parking lot for concrete to be placed. If you have bricks, patio blocks, pavers, and concrete garden items like bird baths, etc. If you are planning to do any sidewalk, patio and driveway replacements the old concrete can be dumped into the dumpster too. As the dumpster fills we will empty it. It only is here for June. This is a free service which is funded by the NJ Recycling Grant.
On Saturday, June 6, the SBCA is holding their annual yard sale day for Stratford from 8a-3p, with rain date

NJ Homestead Rebate
As you know the there were no NJ Homestead Rebates paid in 2014. If you were entitled to receive a NJ Homestead Rebate in 2014, the good news is we have been provided the homestead rebate amounts from NJ and they are being applied to your May 1, 2015 tax payments. Amended tax bills are being mailed out this week. If you pay your own taxes you will receive the tax bill at your home. If your taxes are paid through your mortgage company then the mortgage company will receive the amended bill. Any questions please direct them to the Tax Collector at the Borough Hall, 856-783-0600.
See the attached link for the latest senior spring events notice. Info and details are posted in the lobby of the borough hall too. If you have any ideas or need further info please feel free to contact our senior coordinator Mike Goldin at 856-784-8943.
