Open Public Records

The Borough Clerk’s office is the “keeper” of public records. Any individual or firm may request to view or obtain copies of public records as provided by N.J.S.A. 47:1A1. Requests for public records are administered through the Borough Clerk’s office, Zoning office, Health Department, and Police Records Department.  Anyone requesting copies of public records must complete an OPRA form.  A fee is charged for copies. Some records are immediately available during normal business hours, while other, more complex records will require time to compile and might require an additional fee to make the  copies requested, but will normally be available within 7 business days.
