This is a press release from Bloomfield Township. Press releases are official statements that have not been independently verified.

Bloomfield residents will be receiving their cycle one water bills in the mail within the next few days. As a result of COVID-19, the cycle one bill will cover a longer billing period than usual which will explain the higher bill that some residents will get.

“As a result of COVID-19, we have been forced to adapt and make changes in order to keep residents and municipal employees safe and healthy,” said Township Administrator Matthew Watkins. “One of the changes you will notice is that we have extended the billing period for the cycle one water bill. Residents may notice a higher bill but it is only due to the longer than usual billing period. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Water Department at 973-680-4051.”

The bill will cover the timeframe of March 31 – August 25 and will be due September 25. Bills can be submitted online or in person at the Municipal Building between 8:30am and 4:30pm.
