Go Paperless, Go Green, with Your Sewer Bill!

The Borough of North Plainfield is offering a voluntary automated paperless sewer billing program which will allow you to receive your sewer bill via e-mail. The program is only applicable to SEWER bills and bears NO COST to the homeowner. For any homeowner wishing to enroll, the program will begin with the 2016 billing cycle. If you chose NOT to enroll in automated billing, you will still receive a paper bill from the Borough in March 2016. Please print out this form, complete the information and forward to the Sewer/ Tax Collector's Office. If you have any questions please call 908-769-2908. We also would like to remind you at this time that you can pay, or determine balances owed on, your sewer and tax bills on-line through our Payment Portal.

October is National Fire Prevention month

October is National Fire Prevention month and the North Plainfield Fire Department wants to remind all residents about the importance of "fire safety". Every year in October we help promote the national fire safety campaign, led by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), through fire prevention and education.

Throughout the month, we will visit the local schools to educate the students in our community about fire safety. There will also be an Open House at our Fire Headquarters, 8 Lincoln Place on Saturday, October 15th between 10:00 and 2:00 pm. Fire and EMS apparatus will be on display and our Firefighters and EMTs will be available to answer questions. Please come out and join us for this event.

This year's Fire Prevention Week campaign slogan is, "Don't Wait - Check the Date! Replace Smoke Alarms Every 10 Years" and it is meant to remind the public about the importance of checking your smoke alarms routinely.

The NFPA's survey data indicate that most of the general public do not realize how old their smoke alarms are, or how often they need to be replaced.

As a result of those and related findings, the NPFA is addressing smoke alarm replacement this year with a focus on these key messages:

- Smoke alarms should be replaced every 10 years.
- Make sure you know how old all the smoke alarms are in your home.
- To find out how old a smoke alarm is, look at the date of manufacture on the back of the alarm; the alarm should be replaced 10 years from that date.

Beginning this month the NPFD will also conduct its annual smoke detector battery replacement program for our local senior citizens. If you wish to confirm or schedule a visit from us, please call fire headquarters at (908) 769-2935.

North Plainfield Community Choice Energy Aggregation Program - 7/12/16

PSE&G Residential Electric Customers who have not selected a third party (non-PSE&G) electric supplier for their energy use will receive a letter this week informing them of the North Plainfield Community Choice Energy Aggregation Program. Simply stated, the NJ Board of Public Utilities (BPU) allows for communities to obtain competitive bids for electricity through bundling the electric demand in the municipality and obtaining a quantity discount. This is a voluntary program, although participation in it will result in 6% lower electric rates for PSE&G residential customers and an increase of 5% in the renewable energy component of electricity. The BPU prescribes a very specific process for this program which is why all customers are automatically enrolled unless they opt out (which they may do at any time).

Customers will continue to receive a single bill from PSE&G, PSE&G will continue to respond to all service calls and read meters, and those customers who have PSE&G's WorryFree protection program or custom billing plans will continue to be enrolled in those programs. The attached links provide a copy of the letter and, for those who do not wish to participate in the program, an opt-out card (please also print your name and address if using this card). The letter explains highlights of the program as well as provides contact info for any questions, and information on two meetings which will be held next week to answer any questions.

Letter to Residents

Opt-out Card (Print your name and address if using this on-line version)

Letter to Residents (in Spanish)

Whether of not you participate in this program you always have the right to shop around for an energy supplier to seek the best price, and select the renewable energy component of your electric supply!
